Kodo has lived communally on Sado Island in the Sea of Japan since 1971. Their activities are centered on the 'taiko' (traditional Japanese drum), perhaps the most primitive of all instruments. In 1981 they took the name 'Kodo' and appeared at the Berlin Festival, where the audience called for encores for one hour, the longest ever at the Berlin Symphony Hall. Since then, Kodo has performed throughout Asia, Europe and North & South America, receiving the highest public and critical acclaim. This book for their One World Tour is illustrated with four watercolors (on covers and flaps), calligraphy, and black and white photographs of Kodo in performance.
