Kodo One Earth Tour: Mystery, conceived by brilliant Artistic Director and acclaimed Kabuki performer, Tamasaburo Bando, creates the mood of mystery and wonder common to sacred places everywhere. Mystery is a breathtaking combination of athletic and electrifying drumming, exquisite musicianship, stunning visuals, and pure theatre. It’s darkness and light, exotic creatures, mysterious reverberations – and the legendary wall of sound. Known for power and precision, for discipline, endurance, and sheer spectacle, these percussionist kamikazes will leave you breathless.
