Experience the electrifying wall of sound that completely fills the hall when the athletic artists of Kodo take the stage to perform the ancient Japanese art of taiko drumming. Audiences are captivated by the visually stunning performance, the astonishingly precise movements of the drummers, and the sheer beauty of the sounds created with these traditional instruments. "Indeed, if there is such a thing as perfection in music, Kodo comes as near to it as any group in the world.” (Boston Globe) Since its debut in 1981, Kodo has made it its mission to share taiko drumming with all corners of the globe, giving over 6,000 performances on five continents. Don’t miss this “celebration of music, of physicality, of life” (The New York Times).
Tickets: $50, $43, $30
