The clear purple of an Iris. This purple possesses those qualities of elegance, presence, and charm that befit the early summer sky

We hug our drum tight and, as if lulling a baby, a soft simple rhythm begins. The taiko’s vibration directly touches the heart. It is a fresh breath of life.

Looking heavenward, moved by the rhythm, the enchanting AYAME with its three delicate petals begins a graceful dance.
