Why this is a
Masterpiece

Chosen and explained by Yoshitaka TERADA "Japanese Drum Made from a Wine Barrel". When third generation Japanese in California wanted to start playing the drums to create their own culture, there were few drums to beat. As drums made in Japan were too expensive to import, they gradually mastered the techniques needed to make drums from wine barrels, through trial and error. Early-made drums show the strength of their pioneer spirit and enthusiasm at the time.

History of the Object
A style of playing drums known as kumidaiko (involving a multiple number of taiko drums) began in Japan after World War II, and was carried across the Pacific Ocean to North America in the late 1960s.
