2022 marks the 10th year of our annual concert series in Tokyo’s Asakusa.
Thanks to the people of Asakusa and their fierce support,
it has become an eagerly anticipated event for Kodo and audiences alike.
Our next series takes place at the newly refurbished Asakusa Public Hall, where it all began.
We hope you’ll join us in Asakusa next summer to celebrate this special milestone.

Spirits are set to soar

This production approaches tradition and history with fresh creativity.
When you focus on taiko with simplicity, the energy you conjure resonates out.
We live on Sado Island, play taiko, and create sound. Then we set out across the sea, chasing the horizon on our travels. So I wanted to give this work a title that embodied a sense of soaring and running. I coined the word Shoso to combine those actions and capture that energy and velocity.
Shoso features pieces ranging from classics steeped in Kodo’s history to new offerings making their stage debut.
I hope you’ll join us for this special performance, marking our 10th annual concert series in Asakusa.
