“These men and women drum with their whole body: They are athletes as well as aesthetes.” The Economist

Japan’s legendary drum ensemble Kodo is the world’s foremost professional taiko company. Exploring the limitless possibilities of the Japanese taiko drum, Kodo is forging new directions for this vibrant living art form through its unstoppably energetic, intricately designed and meticulously choreographed performances. But it is the company’s rigorous training and tireless dedication that gives these drummers their unique edge. Their heart-pounding live shows are a dizzying display of power and precision, “a celebration of music, of physicality, of life” (The New York Times).
