What's Included

Exploring the limitless possibilities of the traditional Japanese drum, the Taiko, Kodo is forging new directions for a vibrant living art-form. In Japanese the word "Kodo" conveys two meanings: "heartbeat" and "children of the drum," a reflection of Kodo's desire to play the drums simply, with the heart of a child. Join in this stunning spectacle, combining centuries-old techniques of Taiko drumming with movement and costume. WORKSHOP: Taiko is a dynamic art form that combines percussion, movement and expression. This hands-on workshop will teach techniques on authentic Taiko drums. You’ll be moved by Taiko’s history, ranging from communication, military action, religious ceremony and entertainment. Get in the beat with your new-found skills at the program showcase.
