More About Us........


The Kampong Chai Chee Community Centre Management Committee set up the Kampong Chai Chee CC Daiko, the Japanese Drum (Taiko) group, in December 1997. It was the first of its kind to be set up at a community centre in Singapore.

Over the years, the group has done over 100 performances both locally and overseas. These included major national events such as the National Day Parade 2000 - Carnival At The Bay, Chingay Parade in the year 2001 & 2003, Singapore Arts Festival 1998 & 1999.

They drew overwhelming applause during their overseas performances at Club Med Cherating in Kuantan, Malaysia in 2001 and another performance in Yokohama, Japan in the year 2003.

Our passionate, amateur drummers have also been trained in Japan under Sensei Hatsumi Ishikura of Kantou Abaredaiko. Exchange programs were held with overseas daiko groups and friends from Nihonkai Taiko of Kashiwazaki City and Kamikata Taikoren - Japan, Mr. John Ko of Soh Daiko from the United States of America and Mr. Mark Alcock of Greenwich Meantime Taiko, United Kingdom.

In March 2007, the drummers embarked on another trip to Japan to train intensively under Mr. Hiroyuki Hayashida, a well known Okedo instructor and taiko player with the group “Zi-Pang”. A brief training session was held with Japanese Folk Entertainment Performance Company, Araumaza Taiko, which widens the drummers’ experience of playing drums with the accompaniment of flute, percussions and singing. The drummers also had a rare opportunity to attend a Miyake workshop conducted by Mr. Akio Tsumura, who taught the original form of Miyake to the world renowned taiko group, KODO.

Outreach programs were introduced regularly at community events, schools and corporate functions. The first children’s taiko group in Singapore’s primary schools was initiated by team leader and coordinator, Ms. Sue Kwek BBM, who voluntarily helped to start and train students of East Coast Primary School in the year 2003. Each year, a small group of Kampong Chai Chee PCF Kindergarten children, as young as 6 years old, gets to play and enjoy taiko. These children bring cheers and joy on stage performing at their graduation concert ceremony.

In February 2009, Kanazawa University of Ishikawa Prefecture, invited our Daiko team to perform at their Symposium - "Features for the Future" held at both Kanazawa and Wajima. We were very honoured to be the only Singapore team performing along with other renowned groups like Somei Yoshino Ensemble, Toranosuke Daiko and Gojinjo Daiko. Our fusion piece of "Rasa Sayang & Chan Mali Chan" comprising singing, drumming and ethnic dances, drew encores during performances as well as dinner parties hosted by Kanazawa University.

Kampong Chai Chee CC Daiko aims to promote traditional and contemporary styles of Japanese drumming. This special team of drummers also seeks to explore new musical dimensions such as incorporating other culturally unique musical forms, composing, creating their own music, sing and even dance to the beats of TAIKO. Team effort, passion, discipline and intensive practices; drive the group to attain recognition and commendations in their performances at numerous events.

Japanese drumming is a challenging physical exercise for all age groups. Drummers are trained to swing their arms high and wide with stylized coordination of legs and body movements. This form of drumming produces thunderous beats and rhythms which can be enjoyed across diverse cultures.

Come and enjoy the vibrancy of TAIKO!! Discover a way to keep yourself physically and mentally active; and de-stress the fun way.

Beginners class is held on Mondays (except 5th Monday & public holidays) from 8.00pm to 9.30pm.  Passion Card member enjoys a six (6) month basic training course at just a nominal fee of $100 ($110 for non-member). Senior drummers train on every Wednesday (except public holidays) from 7.30pm to 9.30pm at Kampong Chai Chee Community Centre.  A free trial lesson is available on the first Monday of each month by appointment only. For more information and reservation of trial lesson, please call the CC at 62419878 or email us at kgccdaiko@gmail.com
