Yamato: The Drummers of Japan

14 - 25 March 2017, London

The unmistakable sound of the traditional Taiko drum, used in Shinto rituals, is challenged by the Yamato drummers of Japan. Drums weighing up to half a tonne are hit with ferocious skill, as each beat sends out a heart-thumping torrent of vibrations.


In this high-energy, exhilarating performance, the drummers push their own limits in a staggering display of physical strength as they use their entire bodies to produce their thunderous music.
