They have performed for the Vancouver Folk Music Festival, Vancouver Children’s Festival, Cherry Blossom Festival, Nikkei Matsuri, and of course, Powell Street Festival.

ちび太鼓は、次世代のアジア系カナダ人の子供たちに太鼓を伝えていこうと、Shinobu Hommaによって1993年に結成されました。メンバーは、13歳から29歳までの14人の若いメンバーで構成されています。ちび太鼓は、BC州のユースの太鼓グループとしては最も優れていると評価されています。これまで、パウエル祭はもちろん、バンクーバー・フォーク・ミュージック・フェスティバル、バンクーバー・チルドレン・フェスティバル、桜祭り、日系祭りで演奏してきました。
