Oberlin College Taiko mission statement:

Oberlin College Taiko aims to share an appreciation and understanding of the traditional art form of Japanese taiko drumming, to provide a space for members to come together and build a strong and respectful community through taiko, and to inspire a sense of discipline of the mind, body and spirit.


    OCT was founded in the Fall of 2008, and was chartered as an official Oberlin College student organization in the Spring of 2009. On top of regular weekly practices and performances around Oberlin, OCT teaches a taiko ExCo every year that is open to Oberlin College students and community members. Look for us at the Fall 2010 ExCo fair!
