Yamato: The Drummers of Japan
Tenmei

The captivating Yamato drummers visit from Nara Prefecture, the cradle of Japanese civilization, with a powerhouse program of traditional taiko drumming. Playing massive drums built from animal skins and ancient tree trunks, the troupe’s youthful and energetic drummers channel the heartbeat and spirit of their homeland. Yamato’s newest program, Tenmei (the name translates as “destiny”), is brought to life through the performers’ theatrical fire and unparalleled musical discipline and focus. “This is a show of unbridled enthusiasm, much humour and great musical variety” (The Scotsman, UK).
