“Michi” means a road or path. This special concert showcases the fundamentals upheld and honed by the Kodo ensemble for almost half a century, ever since the days of its antecedent group, Sado no Kuni Ondekoza.
Michi aims to capture the signature form that lies at the heart of classic Kodo programmes, handing that integral part of Kodo’s DNA on to the next generation. Kodo constantly learns from the past as it considers the present and looks towards the future. This programme also depicts the ensemble’s continual quest for variety and multiplicity as it creates profound new works for taiko, a dynamic performing art.
Yuichiro Funabashi (Kodo Ensemble Leader)
