Jack Bazaar

12-week Course

( Composed by Kris Bergstrom )

Jack Bazaar features dynamic choreography and challenging slant-drum mutli-tone rhythms. Specifically requested by the National Theater of Japan for performance in the 2013 Nihon no Taiko concert, Jack Bazaar is one of the taiko world's most exciting compositions.

The oddly-named KarC (Full name: "Karc Joan of Arc") is a challenging arrangement of naname choreography based on a short-repeated rhythm and increasingly difficult sticking.
