The taiko drumming group Fushu Daiko performed at Paradise Park, demonstrating the traditional Japanese musical form that dates back to the 6th century. The Davie-based group’s performance was part of the Village’s music concert series.
The energy of the performance, the group says, allows drummers to releive stress, keep fit, and “create a sense of value and honor between each other and for our elders and teachers,” according to its web site.
