Ondekoza was originally created on the Japanese island of Sado, where a group of young men and women gathered to follow the principle of “Sogakuron”- that “running and drumming are one, and a reflection of the drama and energy of life.” In the city of Fuji in Shizuoka, Japan, Ondekoza members live together and run together at the base of Mt. Fuji. In 2008, Ondekoza launched a new project, “Music & Rhythms,” which aims to “connect the children of world through musical experience.”  Not limiting itself to taiko drums, the project uses a variety of expressive tools to promote the freedom of expression and the limitless possibilities it brings.
