The Taiko Community Alliance (TCA) empowers the people and advances the art of taiko by connecting taiko practitioners in a resource network and increasing access to the collective knowledge and experience of its global membership.


  • Transparency

    Appreciating the trust placed in us by the diverse stakeholders of the TCA, we will maintain open, accountable, and accessible governance; and encourage the free and responsible exchange of ideas between TCA’s membership and leadership.

  • Inclusivity

    Believing that everyone has the freedom to play taiko and participate in the taiko dialogue, we will continually seek to broaden the base of participation in the taiko community and reach out to welcome new members into TCA; embrace differing perspectives and voices within the taiko community; nurture connections within and beyond TCA; and provide the means to make participation at every level in TCA accessible to all.

  • Empowerment

    Understanding the transformative power of taiko for both individuals and groups, we will support avenues to develop artistic excellence; foster an inspirational environment; and encourage the creation of shareable knowledge and resources for those interested in taiko.

  • Heritage & Evolution

    Actively honoring the past as we look to the future of taiko, we will celebrate tradition and foster innovation in the art of taiko; respect the wisdom, generosity, and dedication of past and current leaders while developing the next generation; identify and seek new ways to serve the evolving needs of our membership; and recognize the mutually enriching influences of the global taiko community.

  • Respect

    Acknowledging the diversity of philosophies and practices of individuals and groups within the taiko community while maintaining neutrality, we will use democratic processes wherever feasible, and engage in mutually considerate and respectful conduct.

A Growing Network: TCA Partners

A Growing Network: TCA Partners

The Taiko Community Alliance – much like our taiko community – has continued to grow over the past year, despite the ongoing challenges this pandemic presents. With that growth, we’ve seen a growing need for resources, networking, and opportunities to connect. To help forge the connections between our community and the resources we need, TCA has begun expanding our Parter Program with the addition of new TCA Partners in 2021. TCA Partners are companies or individuals who offer benefits to TCA members, which may include discounted rates and special deals. So, where can your TCA membership help connect you to the products you need? Whether you’re bolstering your taiko tee collection, learning Jack Bazaar (trust us – if you don’t tape your bachi, you’re going to need more bachi), or looking to add more sustainable products to your daily taiko ventures, TCA’s partners have you covered. See below for a full list of our current TCA Partners, including the two newest additions to the TCA Partner family: Taiko Colorado and Shack’s 3D Printing! Learn more about each of our TCA Partners through our full announcement at taikocommunityalliance.org.
