Scope and Content Note

The Soh Daiko Records consist of programs, press releases, video recordings, websites, and clippings documenting Soh Daiko's performances for every year from 1979 through 2014. Paper records in this collection include memorabilia and organizational files such as correspondence, programs and leaflets from performances, clippings, and articles related to the group's performances as well as taiko in general. Video recordings document Soh Daiko performances at venues including the American Museum of Natural History and Japan Society. They include a joint performance with Kodo (a Japanese taiko group), as well as Soh Daiko's appearance on public television programs like Sesame Street and  Reading Rainbow. Other recordings document the group's visit to Japan in the 1980s.
