If your new year has gotten off to a wishy-washy start, it’s not too late: you can still welcome 2015 with a bang.
On January 29, Kodo is coming to Vancouver with its Japanese drumming magic. The group, which is based on Sado Island in Japan, is known for its powerful primal rhythms. (In Japanese, Kodo means both “heartbeat” and “children of the drum”.)
I’ve seen Kodo on stage previously in Japan and when the group was in Vancouver in 2011, and the group is electrifying—not just for its music but the sheer physical strength that they put into their performances.
This time, Kodo is adding a bit of mystery to the mix.
Bang! Kodo’s taiko beats return to Vancouver
