Yamato: The Drummers of Japan
Jhonetsu An unimaginable amount of energy. A 400 year-old instrument. Heart-thumping rhythms and explosive beats. Yamato: The Drummers of Japan combine traditional music with style and agility, fusing Taiko drumming with spectacle and athleticism. Founded in 1993 in Japan's Nara Prefecture and presently based in Asuka Village, said to be the birthplace of Japanese culture, YAMATO travels all over the word with Japan's traditional Taiko drums, putting its very souls into the unusual instruments, whose sound stirs the hearts of people everywhere. "Jhonetsu" is a new program that captures YAMATO's virtuosity, strength, spirit and sheer endurance. This past season marked Yamato's 25th anniversary, celebrating over 3,500 performances in 54 countries.
