Raging For Change
Formed in 1998, Raging Asian Womxn Taiko Drummers (RAW) carry on the diasporic Taiko tradition that grew out of Asian American and Asian Canadian mobilization in the ‘60s and ‘70s. One of the few all-Asian, all-womxn Taiko drumming groups in the world, RAW exists as a critical response and challenge to both systemic and internalized oppression. RAW plays large Taiko drums as creative resistance for social change, carving space for self-expression, education and community building.
This event is presented as part of Harbourfront Centre's Summer Music in the Garden.
