This documentary celebrates the bringing together of two very different musical traditions: the drumming techniques of the Kodo Drummers of Sado Island, Japan, and the traditional Irish music performed by Donal Lunny and Coolfin. Having invited Donal Lunny and his band to play at the 1996 and 1997 Earth Celebrations on Sado Island, The Kodo Drummers made their first trip to Dublin, Ireland, in July 1998 to perform a series of concerts with the Donal Lunny Band. From barely audible pianissimos to earth-shattering explosions of sound, Kodo masterfully combine primal energy with virtuoso refinement.
