Taiko Drummers From Japan


Friday, November 15, 10:00 a.m.,
Concert Hall
$7 Ages: All
Running Time: 55 minutes

Yamato’s motto of “Go anywhere if invited and make the world a little more happy” works!
Be awestruck by the amazing sound of these traditional Wadaiko-drums constructed of animal skin and the wood from 400 year old trees. The athletic training for Yamato drummers is intense--they start their day with a 6 mile run to develop the stamina and strength to play drums that weigh over 1100 lbs! Yamato’s intricate drumming choreography has been seen by over 300,000 people in more than 15 countries. Don’t miss the opportunity to see this world class troupe from Japan!
