“Superlatives don’t really exist to convey the primal power and bravura beauty of Kodo.” Chicago Tribune
“Nothing will prepare you for the 1,000-pound drum… the precise timing or the wall of sound. An essential experience.” Time Out London
A performance by Kodo, Japan’s most celebrated taiko drumming ensemble, is a rare treat: part athletic feat, part artistic sensation, and an all-around electrifying experience. Created by Kodo’s brilliant artistic director and kabuki star Tamasaburo Bando – who was recently named a Living National Treasure in Japan – Mystery evokes the mood of otherworldly splendor and awe found in the world’s most sacred places. A tour-de-force display of exquisite musicianship, Shinto dancing and dazzling visual theater, Mystery breathes new life into ancient folk art traditions. Come enter a realm of darkness and light, exotic creatures, mysterious reverberations – and the legendary “wall of sound."
