Raion Taiko is a Japanese taiko drumming ensemble based in Novi, MI at the Great Lakes Taiko Center. Brian and Mayumi first began the group in 2005 in the Lansing area, but took two years to study taiko drumming in Japan before returning to re-establish the group in 2009.
What's up with the name:
The word "Raion" is made of up of the Japanese characters for "sound" (on) and "thunder" (rai).
