WSKG Arts is proud to partner with the Roy H. Park School of Communications for a series of Arts & Culture Shorts. This segment profiles the energetic and wildly talented Yamatai, which is Cornell University’s student-run taiko drumming team. Based in Cornell’s Lincoln Hall, they perform for several events on campus each semester as well as regional concerts all around the northeast. See how this ancient Japanese art is meticulously recreated by the students at Cornell and go behind the scenes with interviews and rehearsal/audition footage. https://youtu.be/QY6VJob_v0c
