Tatakokan Presents “Let’s Beat Anything SHOW !”
With the motto “music = enjoying sound” this program aims to please people of all ages. This is a fun-filled concert by Kodo and Tomo Yamaguchi (aka Tomotomo) who uses percussion instruments made of found and discarded objects in his one-of-a-kind performance.
In November of last year, Yamaguchi – with his found object percussion instruments – and Masami Miyazaki (aka Sammy) on taiko each collaborated with a pipe organ in Yokohama Minato Mirai. Since then, they’ve been fascinated by each other’s music. At Sammy’s invitation, Tomotomo made up his mind to come to Sado!
And joining the performance from Kodo are Eiichi Saito and Tomoe Miura… Something wild is going to happen! You won’t be able to stifle your laughter at this concert.
