Presented by Mesa Arts Center as part of the Performing Live series

 

Exploring the limitless possibilities of the traditional Japanese drum, the taiko, Kodo is forging new directions for a vibrant living art-form. In Japanese, the word “Kodo” conveys two meanings: Firstly, “heartbeat,” the primal source of all rhythm. Secondly, read in a different way, the word can mean “children of the drum,” a reflection of Kodo’s desire to play the drums simply, with the heart of a child.
