The traditional taiko drum is the basis of a vibrant living art form and Japan’s legendary Kodō drummers are its masters. Kodō means “heartbeat” and, in the visceral beat of the troupe’s collective drumming, they catapult ancient Japanese culture squarely into the 21st century. Their new show Legacy is a physically stunning and musically sensational production that puts Kodō’s huge drums center stage and reworks a treasure trove of signature pieces created over nearly 40 years.

Superlatives don’t really exist to convey the primal power and bravura beauty of Kodō.
