In 2014, during the Inadani at Wadaiko Tokara in Japan, while talking to other taiko players from Asia and Europe, the idea grew to create a counterpart to the "Burundi Wardrums". We found that there was already enough war in the World and since Japan doesn't have an army for war, but only for supporting humane tasks, we found that the Japanese drum (taiko) was the right instrument to draw attention to peace.
As we already learned the creation of Niji Matsuri from Art Lee, we asked for permission to use it for Peace related projects. Each year since 2015 the Taiko Peace Project volunteers give a drumming performance during the Peace Week and on the International Day of Peace (Sept 21). Each year they choose another Flemish city for their pop up / flash mob to draw attention to Peace.
(After all covid-situations, our volunteering Taiko Peace team made several Peace pop-ups, and you can read more about what happened in 2020 on link to pages "MEER" ;))
