Step into the world of Kodo, created by our past, our present, and our dedication to the future of taiko performing arts.
This production showcases the perpetual creative evolution of taiko performing arts ensemble Kodo under the artistic direction of Tamasaburo Bando.
Following its premiere in August 2016 at Suntory Hall in Tokyo, as one of three Kodo 35th Anniversary Commemorative Concerts, this performance toured extensively throughout Japan. The 2018 Europe tour will be the first time this work is presented abroad. We look forward to sharing “Evolution” with audiences at theaters and concert halls throughout Europe!
