Zen monks sit to meditate. When a monk’s concentration starts to waver, he needs “KAK” to awake himself. The sound KAK helps the monk to refocus his mind. Playing music too, requires the same discipline as meditation. One must wait for the precise moments to raise one’s hands, take a breath and make a sound. As the drumsticks strike the edge of the taiko, the KAK sound is produced, helping them to transcend to higher realms of enlightenment.
