In 2022, Kodo celebrated the milestone 10th year of its annual concert series in Tokyo’s Asakusa with a new production. This is the full stage performance of “Shoso,” filmed live at the newly refurbished Asakusa Public Hall.
This bountiful two-hour programme features 15 pieces in all. They range from Kodo's classic repertoire—Miyake, Chonlima, Jang-Gwara, O-daiko, and more—to new compositions by the performers leading Kodo’s sound creation today, such as Yuta Sumiyoshi, Ryotaro Leo Ikenaga, and Masayasu Maeda.
Bringing the energy and creativity that Kodo generated during its pandemic-induced touring hiatus to the stage in full force, Shoso welcomes audiences back to the theater with a creative, uplifting world of taiko music.
