“Kodo’s music can raise the roof!” - The New York Times
Following its sold-out performance in the Knight Concert Hall three years ago, KODO returns with a show that goes beyond a concert to a spectacle of sound, color, dance and martial arts movement. The explosive power of these 24 masters of the ancient tradition of taiko drumming is heart-pounding, bone-shaking and a not-to-be-missed experience.
When KODO began touring the world three decades ago, the performers discovered that the sound of the taiko had a similar effect on its listeners: wherever people heard it, there was an instant sense of community, of oneness. Through this, KODO created the One Earth Tour, and carried by the unique sound of the taiko, it has traveled the world with its message of shared humanity, environmental awareness, and peace.
KODO has performed more than 3,400 concerts on five continents and their music continues to produce startling new sounds and unforgettable performances.
