Taiko is very old form of music, they used this drum in wars, to scare enemies, in rituals to call gods, in festival etc... Nowadays the taiko is represented by the artistic groups that reinvented the form of expression of this tradition, they are called kumi daiko, which means "playing in group".These days there are groups that play their own taiko compositions and there are groups that play the traditional folk performances to keep telling the ancient stories behind the taiko.

Modern groups:

Traditional folk performances

My taiko group plays the traditional ones, like , Buchi Awase Daiko, Miyake daiko,  Chichibu Yatai Bayashi, Hachijo Daiko, etc...
My sensei plays in Araumaza group, and here you can watch the first time he came here in my city to do a workshop that starts taiko here in my city:

His name is Takuma Sawasaki, he did the show with his other group , Kotaro group from Paraguay:

There are taiko drums that cost a Rolls-Royce car. The insturments they are very difficult to make, it takes a long time untill the wood gets prepared and the cow skin needs a special treatment too.

Here I have a video with me playing taiko, I'm the one with the long hair, this is a japanese festival that occurs every year here in the city that I'm living in. the performance is called Buchi Awase Daiko:
