Green Guest Artist Concert: KODO “Dadan 2017”

Add to Calendar7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Friday, February 24, 2017

7:30 p.m.

Green Center, Kresge Auditorium rare combination of supreme artistry and physical endurance, since Kodo’s

debut at the Berlin Festival in 1981, the group has given over 5,800

performances in 49 countries on five continents, exploring the limitless sonic

possibilities of the Japanese drum, the taiko. This production of Dadan, part of

Kodo’s 35th Anniversary celebrations and its first North American tour, will

be the only performance in Indiana. Allow yourself to be immersed in this

mesmerizing 2,000-year old tradition — as old as Japan itself and as much

pure, physical athleticism as it is a form of musical entertainment. Presented

through support from DePauw University's Asian Studies Department. Kodo

also thanks Al Nippon Airways for its support of “Dadan 2017” USA Tour/Kodo

35th Anniversary Production.
