Foyle Obon – YuJo Taiko – Cross Community Project – Video

Foyle Obon has released a film celebrating their cross-community project, YuJo Taiko, which has been running in Claudy, County Derry-Londonderry, since 2013. The project uses the power of Taiko drumming to bring young people together to make friends and explore Japanese culture and musicology.

The YuJo project began during the 2013 City of Culture year and, since then, Foyle Obon has worked with hundreds of young people from St Colmcille’s Primary School and Cumber Claudy Primary School.
