Yamato -- The Drummers of Japan: Chousensha

World

Since its inception, Yamato has redefined the art of taiko drumming. Hailing from Nara, Japan, these masters put on a spectacular visual performance, combining riveting musicianship and high-energy movement with evocatively designed costumes and a remarkable assortment of wadaiko drums. In Chousensha (“The Challengers”), the drummers express emotions related to overcoming obstacles in their lives by challenging their own limits physically and rhythmically, breathing new life into traditional drumming like never before.
