Japan’s legendary Kodō drummers return to Meany virtually with KODO: Legacy, a physically stunning and musically energizing one-hour performance film. Legacy combines some of their best-loved pieces with new work displaying the infinite possibilities of the taiko traditional Japanese drum and Kodō's vibrant living art form. Drumming troupe Kodō, whose name means ‘heartbeat’, are taiko masters, catapulting ancient Japanese culture squarely into the 21st century.

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