Ho Etsu Taiko

Ho Etsu Taiko, a collective of musicians with a fresh take on the art of Japanese drumming, will be the Main Event at this year's festival. Their deep Chicago roots ground their work in a variety of musical styles, from Jazz to Latin and Hip Hop. They work to spread joy and vitality through each and every drumbeat.
