The world is a kaleidoscope of people and cultures. In this age of exploding populations and lightening-fast communication, it is more important than ever that diverse cultures learn to recognize and accept each other so that all may share our increasingly shrinking planet in harmony. Since ancient times the taiko has been a symbol of community, serving as a link among people, as well as a link between people and the heavens. Through the 'One Earth Tour,' Kodo will continue to bring the sound of the Japanese drum to the ears of the world, and with the taiko's unique ability to transcend the barriers of language and custom, remind us all of our membership in that larger community-- the world.
