Profile

Taiyo Onoda started playing taiko in the USA when he was eight years old. He entered the Kodo Apprentice Centre in 2016 and became a Kodo Member in 2019. On stage, Onoda is mainly featured on taiko drums. Earnest by nature, the ensemble can count on this hard-working newcomer to perform any role assigned to him. He gains trust with every challenge he tackles.

Onoda dreams of giving back to the North American taiko community through his work with Kodo, hoping his activities will invigorate and inspire the people who raised him.

In 2018, Onoda appeared in Kodo “Michi” performances and New Kabuki Production “Yugen” in Japan. His first overseas tour took him home to North America in 2019 with “Kodo One Earth Tour: Evolution.”
