Japanese culture fans! In 2020, Paris will welcome a very beautiful show, Kodo (heart’s beat or drums’ children) by the talented Tamasaburo Bando company.
If you haven’t heard about them, know that the band has performed its very first show in 1981 at the Berlin Festival. Since then, several members have left while others have arrived, but the company keeps on living and performing several shows in Japan and all over the world.
With over 6000 shows under their belts, the company has improved their instruments and music. Discovering and listening to the sound coming from these drums is always very impressive.
For the least connoisseurs, Kodo has been invented in the 1950’s by jazz musician Daïhachi Oguchi. He offers Shinto monks – using drums to call the gods – to jazz the Suwa lake with drums of all sizes with an ancient taiko score.
Today, Kodo is one of the most coveted Japanese arts in the world and Japan counts up to 8000 taiko bands created these past thirty years.
On Tuesday February 11, 2020, the Tamasaburo Bando company will perform one Kodo show you don’t want to miss at Paris Salle Pleyel.
