Maze Daiko is an Alameda-based ensemble that brings a fresh twist to taiko drumming with the addition of East African Shona marimba, Persian santur and violin. This unusual combination creates culturally diverse music with the physical elegance and discipline of taiko, but with an entirely new approach. Breaking from traditional taiko performance with its energetic choreography, the group seamlessly blends Japanese, West African, Middle Eastern, Brazilian, Persian and Western instrumentation into its repertoire to create fresh sonic textures with inspiration from islands around the world. For this series, Maze Daiko collaborates with ODC as part of their 50th anniversary celebration.

Back by popular demand Rhythmix’s music history courses will focus on the phenomenon of the Beatles. Their songs will be studied, with analysis of the musical and lyrical content, as well as structural elements. What musical styles do the songs address? What were their musical influences? In what ways did their music change over the years? Why were the Beatles so popular and influential? What exactly caused Beatlemania? How did the group form, grow and end? Where do their public images and personal lives fit in? The Beatles are the most famous rock group in history; the reasons for this are cultural as well as musical, and we will study the two elements simultaneously.
