“Superlatives don’t really exist to convey the primal power and bravura beauty of Kodo.”Chicago Tribune
“The spectator is crushed by their power and then suddenly, silence. Complete silence as if life had stopped in an instant, no applause, not even a breath. I have never seen a show where the audience was so close to suffocating. Don’t miss this, the sound of their drums will be engraved forever on your memory.”Le Quotidien de Paris
