Kodo returns for their first Barbican performance in a decade as part of their One Earth Tour 2016: Mystery, The 35th Anniversary.

Twinning contemporary music and dance based on traditional Japanese arts, the production is directed by Tamasaburo Bando (one of the most celebrated Kabuki actors) and expresses the Japanese sensation of 'mystery' defined by a dynamic taiko drumming performance.

Based on Sado Island in Japan, Kodo, Taiko Performing Arts Ensemble made its debut in 1981 at the Berlin Festival. Since then they have vigorously worked with many taiko drums in all shapes and forms as well as other traditional instruments and tour extensively across five continents.
