Chieko Kojima

Born in Iwafune, Tochigi Prefecture, Chieko first encountered Japanese folk dancing when she joined Ondekoza in 1976.

When Kodo was formed, Chieko carved out a niche for herself as one of the few regularly performing female members. She is noted for the original style of her dancing in Kodo's taiko-based performances. In her piece, Hana-Hachijo, the dance element she brings to her taiko playing explores new frontiers. Chieko's vivid portrayal of the goddess Uzume in the Kabuki actor, Tamasaburo Bando's Amaterasu in 2006 illustrated her unique talent.

Aside from her Kodo performances, Chieko also performs in the song and dance group 'Hanayui' with Yoko Fujimoto and Mitsue Kinjo (Okinawan Dance). She also produces her own solo performances and collaborations in her project, 'Yukiai'. Chieko enjoys expanding her repertoire and meeting new and stimulating people in the course of her world travels.
