This event is over.

Performing on a mind-altering array of traditional percussion instruments large and small, the men and women of Yamato promise a heart-pounding spectacle of athleticism, precision, and exhilarating musical expertise.

Founded in 1993 in Nara—considered the birthplace of Japanese culture—the master drummers of Yamato are young, modern, and brimming with infectious energy as they take the ancient art of taiko drumming and bring it to the present. Selling out all over the planet, Yamato is, according to the London Telegraph, “Simply breathtaking.”
