The Japanese word “kodo” can refer to both “heartbeat”—the primal source of all rhythm—and to the notion of being “children of the drum”—a reflection of this awe-inspiring ensemble’s intention to play the drums with the simple heart of a child. This will be Kodo’s seventh performance at Krannert Center since the group’s 1981 inception; in-between the group has played over 6,000 performances on five continents. At each stop on the global stage, Kodo’s discipline, theatricality, and grace both preserve and expand the breathtaking cultural legacy of taiko drumming.
