He has amassed over 100 items dating from musical instruments, pots and pouches to milk churns and jewelry.
He brings a selection of items each year to exhibit during the open day and explains their history, use and provenance.
The Wool Symposium really appreciates his valuable contribution to the day and Jesús' enthusiasm for keeping these traditions alive.

Isabel Romeo Biedma (Spain)
Is a professional Taiko performer. (Taiko is a broad range of Japanese Drums)
Taiko for me is a joyous way of personal development
Her first contact with Taiko was working in Japan as a dancer with Ago Kaijin Daiko group, who she performed with for two years. Her other taiko origins are in the city of Ise and its Shinto shrine. There she performed with Shin-On Daiko at theTaiko festival. Living in Japan marked Isabel and her professional career.
My aim is to share the energy and beauty of Taiko so that people can enjoy its benefits
as players as well as audience. I dream (and work for) an open and respectful Taiko
community in Spain and abroad, connected from the heart.
