Japanese drumming group Kodō has popularized traditional Japanese taiko worldwide, having performed at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert and recorded on the anthem of the FIFA World Cup Japan, and the band regularly plays Tokyo’s iconic Kabukiza Theater. Employing a wide range of percussion instruments, the more than 30 members of Kodō are known for their rigorous athletic training and manipulation of some of the most impressive drums in the world, like the enormous o-daiko drum whose range spans from whisper quiet to thundering roar.
