Submit a video for this year’s video showcase

This year at ECTC, we’d like to encourage you all to make as many connections in the taiko community as possible. That’s why we’d like that each group attending ECTC to make a short video that will be played at the conference that introduces the group’s goals and what they love about taiko and the taiko community. You may even use the video to showcase a performance or your group’s favorite taiko style. If you are interested in submitting a video, please fill out the following form:
The video can be done in any style. All that we ask is that you have fun with it and show everyone how much you love taiko!
