KODO!

i was treated to a performance of the KODO drummers of japan last evening by shybrilliance, and i'm pretty sure i'm still re-adjusting my jaw.

taiko on recorded media just doesn't have the same sternum-pounding effect as the drums, particularly the o-daiko (which weighs approximately 800 lbs), are specifically designed to be played without amplification.

if you have a chance and enjoy drumming, precision and really feeling music in a physical manner, you owe it to yourself to go see them.

this i understand very well.

i go to parades sometimes, grit my teeth and deal with the crowd just so i can listen to the drum corps and feel it up close.

i'm not sure you could get me to a high school sports event. ;)
