About Us


Jiten Daiko is a young Bay Area Japanese Taiko ensemble. With deep respect for the taiko art form, we strive for artistic excellence in creating an exhilarating musical experience for our audiences. We ground our practice in hard work, collaboration, and a fusion of innovation and tradition. As we continue to grow under our unique training system, and draw from both Japanese and American influences, our group aspires to bring a youthful and energizing sound to the stage. Our name Jiten, or "self-powered", is inspired by our core value of consistently supporting each other in order to innovate faster and grow our collective energy.


Jiten Daiko is proud to be an affiliate of the Buddhist Church of San Francisco.
