Kodo drums

I've wanted to buy a CD or two presenting Kodo drums but haven't done that yet. The above photo is from and shows a couple of Kodo drummers doing their thing in plain, simple attire (fudoshi) much as the percussion is basic and primal. My view is that anyone cane get some rhythm going. "Kodo" has a double meaning in "hearbeat" on the one hand and "children of the drum" on the other or to "play simply with the heart of a child", this according to the article at I think we can all do that if given the chance. On a similar note, the Tao masters of martial arts and percussion will be in Vancouver on March 12th and 13th, 2010 to play the drums and appear at The Centre in Vancouver for the Performing Arts. I'm planning to see this performance. Something to look forward to! - V.
