Description

“Superlatives don’t really exist to convey the primal power and bravura beauty of Kodo.” - Chicago Tribune.

The undisputed masters of the ancient art of taiko drumming, this revered ensemble is a global phenomenon, creating exhilarating soundscapes that cast a spell on sold-out audiences wherever Kodo appears. Performing in a centuries-old tradition of group drumming that utilizes handmade instruments of various sizes and timbres — including the thunderous "o-daiko", a 900 pound decorated drum carved from the trunk of a single tree and played by two men — the members of Kodo are known for both the musical and athletic dynamism of their performances, synthesizing thrilling sounds with the rigorous technique of martial arts.
