Kodo: 35th Anniversary 'DADAN 2017' North America Tour

Presented by Cincinnati Arts Association

Exploring the limitless possibilities of the traditional Japanese drum, the taiko, Kodo is forging new directions for a vibrant living art form. The vibrations created by the drummers not only reach the ears of the audience, they move listeners on a visceral level. In Japanese, the word 'Kodo' holds a double meaning: 'heartbeat', the primal source of all rhythm; or, in a different context, 'children of the drum', which reflects the group’s desire to play the drums with the simple heart of a child.  Simultaneously raw and refined, the performance piece DADAN -- which translates to 'drumming men' in Japanese -- features only Kodo’s young male performers. This powerful performance tests the limits of its player’s physical, technical, psychological, and spiritual abilities, all at the same time.
