20 Years to NATC Timeline: East Coast Taiko Conference

This week, as part of our 20 Years to NATC timeline, we are featuring the East Coast Taiko Conference!

The North American Taiko Conference has inspired many regional taiko conferences, including the East Coast Taiko Conference (ECTC). The first ECTC was held in 2011 at Cornell University, hosted by Yamatai. Since then, players from across the eastern United States and Canada have gathered yearly at universities across the Northeast for workshops, discussion panels, and concerts. Just as NATC has supported the growth of a national/international taiko community, ECTC has helped foster a vibrant regional taiko community.

Next year’s conference will be at Stony Brook University, hosted by SBU Taiko Tides!
