Kodo Drummers

Kodo DrummersT0795931157
Japanese drumming spectacular. Kodo means both 'heartbeat' and 'children of the drum'. Based in their own village on Sado Island, Kodo seek to preserve the centuries-old ritual of the traditional Japanese taiko, whilst also encouraging artistic exchange and collaboration. Constantly absorbing new influences into their own musical heritage, Kodo's performances are a sublime devotional experience maintaining the very spirit of the drum.

Production details

For their 40th anniversary, they created two works based on their name: "Tsuzumi" takes its name and theme from the drum character, and "Warabe" from the child element. In "Warabe," Kodo looks to its classic repertoire and aesthetics from the ensemble's early days. This production blends simple forms of taiko expression that celebrate the unique sound, resonance, and physicality synonymous with Kodo - forever children of the drum at heart. Come and experience the soul-stirring rhythm of life first hand.
