Naomi Guilbert and Hiroshi Koshiyama, professional Japanese taiko drummers, perform an original song called "Covid drive-thru," at the Cloquet library Friday, June 10.

Naomi Guilbert (pictured here in Cloquet) and Hiroshi Koshiyama, professional Japanese taiko drummers, perform an original song called "Covid drive-thru," which Koshiyama said was inspired by a two-hour wait for a Covid vaccination. The husband and wife drummers are part of Fubuki Daiko (Blizzard Drums) from Winnipeg, Canada, and visited the Cloquet and Carlton public libraries last week to both perform and educate. According to their Facebook page, Fubuki Daiko reinvents traditional Japanese drumming with their eclectic and energetic performances that are part martial arts athleticism, part meditation, and all rhythm. According to an enthralled all-ages crowd at the Cloquet public library, they are captivating and lots of fun. Check out a video of the drummers on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/PineKnotNewsMN/videos/1297859257701573
