In 1971, a group of Japanese youth escaped the concrete jungle and arrived at Sado, an island in the Sea of Japan. They started studying and practicing the traditional musical art form of taiko drumming, and went on to start Kodō, a professional drumming troupe, 10 years later. Their taiko performances are distinctive, with the rhythm of the drums delivered like a sudden downpour one moment and a babbling brook the next. Check out Kodō live this week, as they bring their stage production Evolution to Guangzhou.
Tue-Sun, ongoing: Hustle and Bustle: The Age of Dinosaurs

Sat, Jul 20: Milky Moon

Milky Moon is a group of romantic and sweet young artists. In keeping with the incurable left-wing naivety of their youth, the band named their 2019 tour ‘Left-Wing Romanticism,’ and their music fits this title perfectly. Milky Moon’s sound possesses both dreamy and pop music qualities. For those seeking feverish, dream-like experiences in a livehouse setting, this is definitely the show for you.
Sat, Jul 20: Songs Between Two Land
Songs Between Two Land is a jazz quintet comprised of musicians from Italy and China – two faraway lands with radically different cultures and musical styles. Despite the multitude of barriers that exist between them, these five incredibly talented musicians unite here, allowing the audience the opportunity to experience a marvelous clash of musical styles from two exotic cultures. This live show is perfect for those who are seeking laidback vibes. Kick back, enjoy a drink or two and soak up the mellow, toned-down neon lights and sounds of mesmerizing jazz.
