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!
