Leonard Eto Philippine Tour 2023

EXPERIENCE THE ELECTRIFYING PERFORMANCE OF LEONARD ETO, THE LEGEND OF INNOVATIVE TAIKO!

Leonard Eto is one of the most accomplished and innovative contemporary taiko players, whose vision and creativity have deeply influenced the way taiko is performed and viewed in the world today. The distinctive hallmarks of his playing are the fluidity and luminous, dance-like quality; the coexistence of power and effortlessness, and the immense joy expressed in his music and performance. In 1984, Leonard joined the Japanese taiko drum group Kodo and soon became the principal player, organizer, musical director and composer. In 1992, Leonard left Kodo to pursue a solo career. His quest gradually evolved from collaborative activities, travelling to perform in over 55 countries. He continues to challenge his own technical and expressive skills, and has developed the freedom and spontaneity to communicate with any musical style.
