  • Post-Conference Survey!
    To all our wonderful attendees: We were honored to have each and every one of you in Storrs, Connecticut for the East Coast Taiko Conference 2020 this past weekend. Gathering the community on our home campus at the University of Connecticut was extremely meaningful to us. We hope that just like us, you made new connections and learned new lessons that you will work to take with you far into the future.

  • Thank You.
    After catching up on some sleep, we wanted to thank everyone who came to ECTC. Without you, ECTC wouldnt be possible every year, and all of us at UConn Kodama Taiko did our best to put on the conference you all deserved. We hope it was enough to give lasting knowledge, connections, and memories. We are excited for the future of taiko, and the future of ECTC with Gendo Taiko in 2021.
