Complete your Kodo collection. Kodo (2) ‎– Children Of The Drum.

Kodo's performances grow out of Japanese traditional arts, but its younger members are challenging the group and its limits. Jun Akimoto, a drummer in the musical group Kodo, explains that the group’s namesake is written in two Chinese characters. One is for drum and the second is for children. So, we are the children of the drum. Also, when you say ‘kodo; it sounds like a heart beat. We think both sets of meanings apply to the group. Kodo has come to the IU Auditorium a number of times. Each show has been different. Kodo first performed in Berlin in 1981. We were on a program that showed music from many places and our part was of traditional music of Japan. Since then, Kodo has traveled and developed.

The name Kodô can mean both heartbeat and children – despite its crashing sound, the beat of their trademark giant Ōdaiko is said to resemble the heart heard from inside the womb. The drummers are now based in Kodô village, a few kilometres north of Ogi, where they have set up the Kodô Cultural Foundation. Apart from a two-year apprenticeship programme, the drummers hold occasional workshops (Kodō juku) which are open to anyone with basic knowledge of Japanese.

Kodo's name has multiple meanings; it can be translated either as "children of the drum" or as "heartbeat," the source of all rhythm, and both meanings are entirely applicable. The Japanese ensemble, based on the island of Sado, is the most prominent exemplar of traditional Taiko drumming, although it has moved beyond its pure folk origins to include influences as diverse as the Grateful Dead's drummer Mickey Hart, Tomita, and other Asian drumming traditions.

Kodo means "heartbeat, "children of the drum or children of the world. On Sado the group combines arduous physical training and everyday life experiences. New York Times music critic James R. Oestreich wrote, Despite this relative isolation, Kodo is public-spirited and internationally minded: thus the one earth notion, an extension of the idea that a community was once defined by the distance over which the o-daiko, the big drum used in Buddhist and Shinto temples, could be heard. Long the province of an elder master, Yoshikazu Fujimoto, the drum was played here by Kenta Nakagome, wielding clublike drumsticks over his head for what seemed an impossibly long time, and then some. The earth shook benignly.

Kodō (鼓童) is a professional taiko drumming troupe. Based on Sado Island, Japan, they have had a role in popularizing taiko drumming, both in Japan and abroad. They regularly tour Japan, Europe, and the United States. In Japanese the word "Kodō" conveys two meanings: "heartbeat" the primal source of all rhythm and, read in a different way, the word can mean "children of the drum".
