Hi Culture Connoisseurs!
If you have never experienced Taiko drumming, it is something to behold! Taiko requires strength, endurance and discipline, and it is a beautiful yet powerful art form. Tickets cost $41-$45 and can be purchased here http://www.meany.org/tickets/?prod=5412. Tickets are nearly sold out so please purchase your tickets as soon as possible!
"In Japan, the name “Kodo” carries two meanings, “heartbeat” or “children of the drum.” And for these superb performers it represents the company’s desire to play taiko purely, “with the heart of a child.” But there is nothing childlike in the primal beat of a Kodo performance. Although the company plays a variety of instruments, it’s their massive drums weighing as much as 900 pounds that mesmerize the audience. Seeing Kodo is an unforgettable experience."
Prior to the performance, join me for appetizers and drinks at 7pm at the bar in the main lobby. Menu options include wine, beer, cocktails, salads, baguettes, and a cheese sampler. Here are links to the menu options:
