TaikoMix was formed in 2005 by graduating members of the UC Riverside collegiate taiko ensemble in response to a specific need for Asian and Asian American community representation of traditional and cultural arts in the Inland Empire (San Bernardino and Riverside Counties) region.

After attending the North American Taiko Conference, TaikoMix co-founders Jeannette Maniago and Terry Nguyen had a vision to create TaikoMix, the Inland Empire's first community taiko ensemble, to provide opportunities to our community to experience taiko. 

Headquartered in Riverside, California, TaikoMix incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in 2008.
