jacket_front_data

Our new album “Kaden” will be released on Dec. 21 (Wed).

“Kaden” features nine original compositions that were created especially for our four recent “Kodo One Earth Tour” productions directed by Tamasaburo Bando: Legend, Mystery, Eternity, and Chaos. In September, we captured the tracks in the latest high-resolution audio at Sony Music Studios Tokyo.

Each piece was honed on stage through numerous performances, then carefully recorded as a unique work in its own right. Each and every instrument shines with clarity thanks to the studio recording and new high-resolution sound. We look forward to sharing this album with you all.

Kodo Online Store: Masayuki Sakamoto in New Release DVD & Blu-ray “Eternity”


Photo: Narumi Matsuda

Behind the Scenes, Episode 2

The fourth piece on the “Eternity” programme is called Seiten. It is a solo piece composed by Masayuki Sakamoto, which he performs using one okedo-daiko (barrel drum).

Photo: Takashi Okamoto

Sakamoto worked alongside Mr. Yasuo Asano, the company president of taiko maker Asano Taiko, to create the particular okedo-daiko that he plays for this piece. It was developed through trial and error and has a special feature: the ability to tune each head separately. Kodo is really particular about sound and the Asano Taiko craftsmen have tremendous skills, so the combination of their fine attention to detail produced this special drum.

Recorded: Live at Bunkyo Civic Hall, Tokyo, Japan, on December 21–22, 2014.

Price: Blu-ray: 6,000 yen (tax inc.) / DVD: 5,000 yen (tax inc.)

Kodo Online Store: Yuichiro Funabashi in New Release DVD & Blu-ray “Eternity”


Photo: Narumi Matsuda

Behind the Scenes, Episode 1

The third piece on the “Eternity” programme is called Gosui and it features Yuichiro Funabashi center stage playing an instrument that Kodo received from Suar Agung, the past Earth Celebration guest artist group from Indonesia who will return to the EC stage this year. Before the rehearsals began for “Eternity,” this instrument was on display in the entrance to the main building at Kodo Village… and the composition evolved from the idea of playing it to see what sound it would create.

July 10 New Release: “Ikkan Fugetsu Vol. 2: Tomoshibi”


Announcing the July 10 Release of Motofumi Yamaguchi’s Second Solo Album “Ikkan Fugetsu Vol. 2: Tomoshibi”

一管風月Vol.2ともしびジャケット20150630_800px

All seven of these peaceful, contemplative recordings were created in the naturally serene surroundings of Kodo Village on Sado Island. Centered around the bright, crisp tones of the makobue & shinobue bamboo flutes, “Tomoshibi” floats across a rich sonic landscape: from the intricate harmonics of the eleven-string alto guitar, to a passionate duet where flute and piano intertwine in the Russian folksong, “Огонёк,” also known as “A Little Light” in English & “Tomoshibi” in Japanese. Ikkan Fugetsu Vol. 2 Tomoshibi also includes the soulful spiritual “Nobody Knows the Trouble I’ve Seen,” which is dedicated here to the late Akira Nino, the pianist who performed on the debut “Ikkan Fugetsu” album released in 2009.


Release Date: July 10, 2015
