Shasta Yama is a rare opportunity for a rural community like Siskiyou County to be able see and experience the full art of Taiko at the 8th Annual Shasta Yama summer outdoor Taiko and music festival on July 28thin Mount Shasta’s Shastice Park. While most of us have seen Shasta Taiko perform at many local events “Shasta Yama is an enchanted evening of dance and drumming  steeped in tradition with the contemporary and progressive” sensibilities of founders Russel Baba and Jeanie Mercer. This concert features some of the best Taiko performers in the world!




Russel Baba, Jeanie Mercer & Masato Baba



The annual Shasta Yama concerts helps  to support Shasta Taiko’s “community programs which includes ongoing classes; maintaining a performing group to give educational demonstrations and public performances; special workshops.” During the academic year Shasta Taiko is in many Siskiyou schools giving educational demonstrations and teaches children about the history of Taiko. Shasta Taiko is a nonprofit corporation whose purpose is “to introduce, teach, develop, promote, and preserve the art of Taiko and related music and arts, thereby culturally enriching the community and artistically evolving the art.”


This year’s Shasta Yama will include drumming, dance and performances from Shasta Taiko and San Jose Taiko whose performances have been described as mesmerizing, powerful, fantastic, thrilling, exceptional, and spectacular. Also featured this year will be Masato (Maz) Baba of the Taiko Project, Toru Watanabe of Portland Taiko  for the full line up visit Shasta Yama.


Nothing can ever replace a live concert experience, but you can see some past performances on Siskiyou TV.  On Siskiyou TV you will find many interesting  topics  your can watch  from around Siskiyou and beyond.


The gate opens at 5 pm. Food and refreshments will be available. This is an amazing opportunity for everyone to see world class musicians and dancers and to support our local musicians. So take the kids, bring your lawn chair and enjoy the concert. Consider it a staycation!


Tickets can be purchase at the Mount Shasta Chamber of Commerce and at the gate.
