We are pleased to announce that Kodo has been invited to appear in the prestigious Royal Variety Performance, a gala charity evening held annually in the United Kingdom, which is attended by members of the British Royal Family. The event is presented each year in aid of the Entertainment Artistes' Benevolent Fund, of which Queen Elizabeth II is patron. The performance is said to "showcase the very best in entertainment from around the globe each year" and Kodo is truly honored to be included in such company.
