The origins of the Taiko drum are shrouded in mystery. Yet, from the battlefields of the warring states and the courts of the early emperors to the temple rites of Buddhist and Shinto faiths, this ancient tradition has been a potent symbol of Japanese culture for centuries.
Japan's electrifying 10-piece Taiko drum troupe Yamato have been keeping this tradition alive for over a decade, performing their heart-stopping blend of primal power and delicate finesse to over a million spellbound spectators worldwide. With remarkable strength and dazzling skill, Yamato's spectacular new show takes this archetypal Japanese folk art to a whole new level.
