Abstract: This paper is a study of taiko (Japanese drums) in mediatised contexts of popular culture where technologies are the predominant media through which this form of drumming is performed. When an instrument is culturally transformed and recontextualised in other settings, it can extend the field of organology to offer new ways of understanding musical instruments and their inherent cultural meaning (cf. Kartomi 1990).
