Japanese drumming group 'Matsuri Taiko' (formerly Atsui no Taiko) formed in 2003 at The University of Adelaide, South Australia. The group was formed by Katie Daly, who began teaching this group after gaining experience at Flinders Street School of Music.

The group is made up of percussionists who have studied at The University of Adelaide's Elder Conservatorium of Music. Katie Daly and Nicole Weepers of Matsuri Taiko travelled to Japan in 2007 and 2008 to study with their Sensei, renowned Taiko Master Masaaki Kurumaya, bringing back with them a wealth of knowledge and experience. As well as a highly accomplished performance group, Matsuri Taiko offer workshops for schools and businesses, 'Come and Try' sessions and ongoing classes.
