SMS: Kodo—Taiko Drumming

Student Matinee Series SMS: Kodo—Taiko Drumming

  • Tuesday, March 19, 10am
  • MainStage Map It
  • All grades.

  • $8.50

Exploring the limitless possibilities of the traditional Japanese taiko drum, Kodo forges new directions for a vibrant living art-form. In Japanese, the word Kodo conveys both “heartbeat”—the primal source of all rhythm—and “children of the drum,” a re?ection of Kodo’s desire to play the drums simply, with the heart of a child. Since 1984, Kodo has been continually touring under the banner One Earth, a theme embodying the group’s desire to transcend language and cultural boundaries, reminding audiences of the common bond we all share as human beings.
