Sound of drums humming fill Claremont Village
It’s a Saturday night and the sun has just set, when all of the sudden you hear the loud banging of drums. Then the sound gets even louder, like a marching band is walking through the Claremont Village. It turns out that it’s Miki Amen, right, the co-director of Claremont Taiko, leading a group of students playing Japanese percussion instruments called Taiko. And of course, the class was held outside because of COVID-19 restrictions. The class practices in an alley off First Street near College Avenue. It’s easy to find. Just listen.
