Kodo: Evolution

This event has now passed.

As Japan’s preeminent taiko drumming troupe, Kodo explores the limitless rhythmic possibilities of the traditional drum, and in the process, forges new directions for the vibrant and living art-form. In Japanese, the word “Kodo” holds a double meaning. It can be translated as “heartbeat,” the primal source of all rhythm. Indeed, the great taiko is thought to be reminiscent of a mother’s heartbeat as felt from the womb, and babies are often lulled to sleep by its thunderous vibrations. If read in a different context however, Kodo can also mean “children of the drum,” which reflects the group’s desire to play the drums with the simple heart of a child.
