Back by popular demand, YAMATO – The Drummers of Japan have enthralled audiences for nearly 20 years with passion, excitement and sheer force. With a massive drum, six feet in diameter and made from a 400-year-old tree as their centerpiece, the highly skilled men and women of YAMATO play 40 taikos of various sizes, blending phenomenally powerful and dramatic drumming with music of delicate beauty and humor. Athleticism, superhuman feats of coordination and incredible intensity are the trademarks of this irresistible ensemble.
