Odaiko Workshop with Yosuke
This is a workshop that builds your technique by unleashing your mind and the body. No technical steps are necessary when you play taiko with your gut instincts. Just come prepared with an open mind and emptied thoughts.

Yosuke entered the Kodo Apprentice Program on Sado Island in 1998 and joined the Taiko Performing Arts Ensemble Kodo after completion of the program. Since then, he has traveled to 30 different countries for performances. In the production, 'Amaterasu', directed and played by world renowned kabuki actor Tamasaburo Bando, Yosuke was chosen to portray the role of the brother, Susano'o, and performed at the ACT Theatre in Tokyo, Minami-za in Kyoto, Kanamaru-za in Kagawa, and Shochiku-za in Osaka. In October of 2017, he began his solo career specializing in the Odaiko performance. Underlining the theme of "Life is transient, life is precious, living this life to the very fullest", Yosuke broadens his field with his refined technique, strong mentality, and an explosive energy that goes beyond one's limits, for his various solo Odaiko performances, guest appearances on concert events and collaborations, stage direction, composition, and workshops.
