About this Performance

Due to the continuing COVID-19 crisis, all LA Phil concerts at Walt Disney Concert Hall have been canceled through December 31, 2020. 

Tickets to this event are not available at this time.

While this concert has not yet been canceled, we know that everything from seating configurations to which artists are able to travel will be impacted by the pandemic. If the LA Phil is permitted to stage live events in early 2021, tickets will go on sale at least four weeks before the first concert. Visit this page for the latest updates and to learn more.


Since their founding in the 1980s, Kodō has explored the possibilities of the Japanese taiko drum. Three decades later, they’re still making new discoveries. The group returns to Walt Disney Concert Hall for an evening of thrilling, physically visceral music that pulses along to the beat of their collective drumming. Through their surprisingly nuanced playing, Kodō draws subtle tones from their drums, placing them in conversation with traditional Japanese instruments and embodying a range of human experience. “Kodō” can be translated from Japanese as both “heartbeat” and “child of the drum,” and with their thrilling, close-to-the-bone performances, Kodō captures both the physicality and the emotional depth of the taiko.
