Still working on that hot first release.



Japanese taiko drummer, Jason Seymore, AKA "Jeiko," has been actively performing since 2007 when he joined Orlando Taiko Dojo & Matsuriza in Orlando, FL. Since beginning his performance career, Jason has performed both as a member of an ensemble and as a soloist - performing widely in the southeast, Arizona, New York, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire.

Jason began his performance career under the direction of Ishikura Takemasa, leader of the resident Japanese drumming ensemble, Matsuriza. Over the next decade, Jason worked to develop his skills, techniques, and understanding of the art of taiko. His desire to be the most consummate performer possible can be seen through his intensity, focus, and character on stage. Whether as a soloist, or a member of an ensemble, Jason thrives and expresses himself through the sound of taiko. As a composer, Jason continues to share his own feelings through the sound of the taiko (drum), shinobue (flute), chappa (hand cymbals), and other various instruments from Japan through works he has written such as "Mujyakini" and "okedo no fukiyose."

One of Jason's passions in life is teaching others. As a practitioner, Jason understands the importance of sharing the art of taiko with the communities who have a desire to learn. While part of the Orlando Taiko Dojo, Jason also assisted with instruction of basic skills, drills, and techniques. In 2016, Jason relocated to New Hampshire and founded the first and only school for taiko - Hokuto Taiko Dojo. In addition, Jason has taught multiple clinics and workshops throughout Florida and New Hampshire, and Massachusetts.
