Immerse Yourself in Taiko with Kodo on Sado Island!

“Taiko Exchange Forum” is a live-in workshop for taiko players held on Sado Island, where Kodo is based.

This forum is your chance to unlock Kodo’s vault of taiko skills and knowledge, which the ensemble has amassed over the past four decades. Learn firsthand from Kodo performers as they share encounters, philosophies, and experiences from the group’s life on Sado Island and performances all over the world. We hope you’ll get a lot of tips and ideas to take home with you. You’re also invited to tell us what you’d like to do during this workshop, so you can really make the most of this opportunity.

There will be plenty of intervals throughout the workshop to encourage communication. Whether it’s a story about taiko or your hometown that you’d love to share, a burning question about taiko, or a request for advice, this group will be filled with people eager to listen, chat, and help.

This is a special opportunity for taiko lovers to get together to enjoy taiko and discuss the future of this instrument and art form. We hope you can join us!
