One of the most beloved and influential taiko ensembles in the world, Kodo returns with Evolution, a breathtaking retrospective that traces the group's history by presenting signature works created from the 1970s to the present. Kodo harnesses the raw power and thunderous energy of traditional Japanese taiko drumming in sleek theatrical productions, its athletic drummers coaxing both delicate sounds and pounding fury from a whole family of drums, including the gigantic o-daiko, weighing in at 660 lbs. "Its music is a matter of flesh and blood, wood and stretched skin. Kodo can raise the roof, but the group can also show extraordinary finesse" (The New York Times).
