What You Need to Know:
- So we all know that E3 has drawn to a close but that doesn't mean the events have stopped! Otakon 2017 is just around the corner and we have some exciting news for those who plan to attend.
- Popular Taiko Drum group Chin Paiko will be performing live for fans at this year's Matsuri event, that will take place on Friday and Saturday of the event. They'll also be taking part in the opening ceremonies also.
- Since 2010 the group has been demonstrating and teaching the famous Okinawa Eisa, which is a combination of Karate, dance and Taiko. They've done an array of performances both in Japan and North America and now their next stop is at Otakon, for all of you to partake in. Their concept is to practice "peace through understanding each other's culture." Be sure not to miss them!
