KODO One Earth Tour: Evolution

The ever popular Kodo returns to Toronto after four years with a new show "Evolution". The drummers are noted for their strength, endurance and discipline in addition to the immaculate and virtuoso taiko drumming.

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. Firstly, “heartbeat,” the primal source of all rhythm. The sound of the great taiko is said to resemble a mother’s heartbeat as felt in the womb, and it is no myth that babies are often lulled to sleep by its thunderous vibrations. Secondly, read in a different way, the word can mean “children of the drum,” a reflection of Kodo’s desire to play the drums simply, with the heart of a child.
