In Japanese, the word Kodo can assume two different meanings. It can mean heartbeat, the primal source of all rhythm. The
taiko was seen as a point of gravity long ago, a sound which drew everyone in and breathed life into them. The sound of the
thundering taiko is said to resemble a mother's heartbeat as felt in the womb, and audiences today are still enveloped by
its lulling sounds. Kodo can also mean children of the drum, a reflection of the performers desire to play the drums simply
and purely, and it's through that ethic that they have become one of the most prolific world music acts ever to take the stage.
Kodo strives to both preserve and re-interpret traditional Japanese performing arts. After years of touring, performers
have incorporated a kaleidoscope of world music and experiences which now exerts a strong influence on the group's performances
and compositions. Collaborations with other artists and composers span the musical spectrum, lending Kodo's music a sound
that is both timeless and fresh. Kodo's lack of preconceptions about its music continues to produce startling new fusion and
forms, and each performance is more layered than the last. Since the group's debut at the Berlin Festival in 1981, Kodo has
given more than 3600 performances on all five continents, and its latest tour promises to be its most thrilling yet. Get your
