References

Rome Hamner has been performing and teaching taiko and world music for nearly 20 years. She currently works with PJ Hirabayashi through her TaikoPeace initiative and performs with TaikoSOBA in Palo Alto. In a career that includes well over 1,000 performances, highlights include playing for a crowd of 20k+ while suspended 200 feet in the air, a nationally televised appearance, and combining poi training and pyrotechnics to play with lit bachi (i.e., drumsticks that were set on fire- intentionally). Rome recently launched KINaesthetic, an ensemble that explores taiko and movement for powerful musical expression.
