The driving force behind Kodo is the perfection and precision of all of the drumming taking place. This is what separates the drum troupe from your average hippie drum circle. Usually, with this many percussion instruments collected together, any piece of music quickly transforms itself into a sloppy, roundabout loop of mushed patterns. With Kodo, however, every stroke on every drum and every vocal or handclap that takes place is carefully planned out and executed crisply.

Any aficionado of world music or percussion should already have the full Kodo album lineup in their collection, but those outside the loop could consider Ibuki a decent opening foray into the style.
