If we can speak of perfection in music, Kodō comes closer to it than any other ensemble in the world. (The New York Times)

Since the first world tour with a performance in Berlin in Protected content has remained historic, Kodō stands out for its unique ability to remain faithful to the millennial tradition of taiko, the Japanese drum, while continuing to open up new horizons to reinvigorate this form of 'art.
