An epic journey to Japan with the group KODO. The long-awaited follow-up to Tsuzumi is finally coming to Montreal in 2025!

A pulsing percussion performance, worthy of the Japanese term “Kodo,” which can literally be translated as “heartbeat.” This new work, titled “Warabe,” looks to the troupe’s classic repertoire, inspired by Japanese stories. The opening number is, in fact, a nod to an art form called Shishi, or deer dance, in the purest Japanese tradition. A simple blend of the multiple sounds, expressions, and vibrations of the taiko drums, evoking a wide range of emotions in audiences. Unique sounds and resonances that are said to vibrate right through to a person’s soul.
