Walt Disney Concert Hall says…

The visceral intensity, the athleticism, of taiko drumming in the hands of a master group like Japan's Kodo may feel like the polar opposite of kabuki theater's controlled, nuanced performances. Yet when Kodo announced it had found a new Artistic Director in kabuki icon Tamasaburo Bando - often referred to simply as "Tamasaburo" - it made perfect sense.

They both draw on the deep well of traditional Japanese culture, rooted in a long lineage and sense of place that bring unflagging precision and profound personal commitment to their work. It runs through the explosive power of a giant booming drum stroke and through the most delicate of hand motions, though the harvest celebrations and demon dances to the most refined and urbane stages.

Now their joint labors are coming to America in early 2013, with a tour that will feature several re-envisioned and new pieces guided by Tamasaburo's distinct aesthetic and deep experience.
