Tickets: 80-270 zł
Performers
Kodo

Kodō 鼓童 is arguably the most well-known taiko group in the world. They regularly perform in Europe, the United States, and the Far East. They are the organizers of the Earth Celebration, an international arts festival on Sado Island, managed by the city of Sado and the Kodō Culture Foundation. In the Japanese language, the word "kodō" carries two meanings: "heartbeat," the primal source of all rhythm, and read differently, the word can mean "children of the drum." The group is renowned for their rigorous training, including daily ten-kilometer runs. 

While taiko drums are the main instruments in their performances, other traditional Japanese musical instruments such as fue and shamisen make appearances on stage, as well as traditional dance and vocal performances. Kodō's repertoire includes pieces based on the traditional rhythms of regional Japan. During their performances, the only piece of attire worn is a loincloth-like belt called "fundoshi." The musicians claim that it helps them concentrate their vital energy. Their concerts are, in equal measure, musical spectacles and choreographic displays. 

Concert duration (intermission included): approximately 120 minutes
