Japan’s legendary Kodo drummers return to their roots with Legacy, a physically stunning and musically sensational show which puts their huge drums centre stage and reworks their treasure trove of signature pieces created across almost 40 years of international touring.
Taiko is a traditional Japanese drum and is the basis of a vibrant living art form. Drumming troupe Kodo, whose name means ‘heartbeat’, are its masters, catapulting ancient Japanese culture squarely into the 21st century.
Since their formation in 1981, Kodo have given no fewer than 6,000 performances in 50 countries around the world. Legacy combines some of their best-loved pieces and new work, which concentrates on the infinite possibilities of their sensational drumming.
‘Balancing a deadly aggression with utter tranquillity, Kodo’s sound stretches from the lightest of rainfall to cataclysmic thunderclaps, from silence to a wall of sound, as high, frightening and impregnable as a mountain.’
