Background
Arugakki is a collective of taiko artists surrounding Los Angeles-based performer and composer, Kristofer Bergstrom, and the hub for adventurous taiko in southern California, Los Angeles Taiko Institute.  Arugakki's performances take diverse forms, from participatory mochi-making theater parties to bicycle-powered, roving taiko concerts.  Arugakki's percussive, uplifting music fuels engagement and celebration.  Arugakki's music is the defiantly contemporary, southern-California version of a traditional concept: rhythm as an integral part of art and culture.
