Discography | Honoka


This live DVD is a recording of the powerful stage finale of "Kodo 30th Anniversary One Earth Tour 2011," held at Tokyo's Aoyama Theatre in December 2011 after an extensive nationwide tour throughout Japan.

The graphics for the Kodo 30th Anniversary One Earth Tour featured the name "Kodo" painted in energetic, fiery calligraphy characters by internationally renowned artist Taro Okamoto. The opening number of the performance, Honoka (meaning fire's flames), was a new piece dedicated to the great artist and this recording adopts the same title. The cast of both veteran performers and newcomers unites honed skills and youthful power to showcase Kodo's past and present in a performance that commemorates the history of Kodo to date.

This popular performance is also available for download as a digital album, which includes the original studio recording of Tomorrow.
