What You Need to Know:
- AUN and HIDE are no strangers to the Taiko drum scene, as they're the representatives who'll be playing for a crowd at this year's Otakon event. These incredible talents have been devoted to their art of Wadaiko for many years, being appointed as cultural exchange ambassadors for their illustrious work in the field.
- Their talents combine the best of Wagakki (Japanese traditional instruments like the Taiko, Shamisen, etc) and perform them on stage for fans.
- To see these artists in action, be sure to attend Otakon 2017 which takes place from August 11-13 at the Walter E. Washington Center, Washington D.C.
