Yamato Drummers of Japan


The Yamato Drummers, bare-armed, muscles working, fill the stage with energy and pulsing rhythm. In the past, you'd have to travel to Japan to experience the troupe's physical music and traditional instruments among them, floor drums, drums suspended from the shoulders on straps, drums carved from huge oak trees and the sounds of three-stringed instruments and bamboo flutes. Yamato is the ancient word for Japan, and in this performance, an invigorating, vicarious journey there as well. The Yamato Drummers present a powerful performance, not to be missed!
