Both beginners and experienced chappa-lovers alike are welcome to join this workshop. Come and play along with Kodo’s own chappa authority, Kazuki Imagai. He’ll teach you the basics, and then you’ll learn to play along to a taiko base beat. Everyone will be provided with chappa to use during this workshop, so just bring your enthusiasm. See you there chappa lovers!
Kazuki Imagai was brought up listening to the rhythm of taiko, just like Kodo’s Yoshikazu Fujimoto, who is from same village in Kyoto Prefecture. He entered the Kodo Apprentice Centre in 1994 and became a Kodo member in 1996. He is a multifaceted performer who is featured on taiko drums, metal percussion instruments and also as a dancer. He has been touring with the Kodo School-Workshop Performance Tour since its inaugural performance in 1999 and has a great deal of experience working with children. At Kodo, he is the icebreaker and mood maker in collaborations with artists across multiple genres.

Chappa are small percussion instruments held in the hands and struck together, like tiny cymbals.
