KODO - the magnificent Japanese taiko drummers arrive in Seattle today to open a two month long tour of the United States with their first performance atking place at the Capitol Theatre in Yakima, WA on Thursday evening. The tour takes them literally coast to coast and back again performing 29 shows in 23 cities.
KODO are based on Sado Island off the west coast of Japan. Sado is an extraordinary place where traditional ways of life and the island's inherent performing arts still thrive today. This island is the fountain of KODO's inspiration and the guiding force behind their creative lifestyle. Their goal is to find a harmonious balance between people and the natural world.
