Kodo drummers at the Palace Theater Tues. 3.24

Kodo performs at the Palace Theater on Playhouse Square on Tuesday 3.24 at 7:30PM and it sounds cool. Innovations in metallurgy, African and Indonesian inspiration, and spartan communal living on a forgotten island gave birth to this artistic (and elemental) experience. North American audiences may not realize what goes into the sounds they'll hear when the premier Japanese taiko group performs here as a part of a rare 29-city North American tour. Critics call them "samurai percussionists" — you be the judge.
