ZAGREB, January 19, 2020 – Japanese Kodo drummers will perform their new show “Legacy”, marketed as a spectacular synthesis of some of their most popular pieces and new compositions, at Zagreb’s Vatroslav Lisinski Concert Hall on 9 February.

The drumming troupe, whose name means “heartbeat”, are masters of the art form who have catapulted the ancient Japanese culture straight to the 21st century. Since they started performing in 1981, the Kodo ensemble gave more than 6,000 performances in 50 countries all over the world.

“The legendary drumming sensation has been thundering throughout the world for 40 years, leaving audiences breathless,” states the concert announcement. Their giant drums unearth a treasure trove of images and sounds the group has created in almost 40 world tours.

Legacy, Kodo’s new show to be staged at the Vatroslav Lisinski Concert Hall, is a combination of some of their most popular pieces and new compositions, focusing on the limitless possibilities of their drumming.

“Japan’s legendary Kodo drummers return to their roots with a physically stunning and musically sensational show. Legacy puts Kodo’s huge drums centre stage and reworks their treasure trove of signature pieces created over almost 40 years of international touring,” it is stated in the announcement.

“Balancing a deadly aggression with utter tranquillity, Kodo’s sound stretches from the lightest of rainfall to cataclysmic thunderclaps, from silence to a wall of sound, as high, frightening and impregnable as a mountain,” writes The Guardian.
