A performance by Yamato – The Drummers of Japan – is infused with the idea that the drumbeat, like the heartbeat, is the very pulse of life. That pulse grows to a thunder as the master drummers put their souls into performing on an unbelievable array of traditional percussion instruments large and small, including massive Odaiko drums six feet in diameter.

Founded in 1993 in Nara, considered the birthplace of Japanese culture, Yamato travels the world with traditional Wadaiko drums. The men and women of Yamato are young, modern, and brimming with infectious energy, and promise a heart-pounding spectacle of athleticism, grace, precision, and musical expertise, described as a celebration of life where pure energy meets spiritual high. For the players of Yamato, every encounter with their listeners is a unique and precious experience. Their greatest goal is to send audiences home after each performance with a new vitality and passion for life!
