Yamato, the Drummers of Japan, return to North America in 2020 with a high-energy and explosive interpretation of a centuries old Taiko tradition.  Watch dozens of musicians enter the stage filled with drums of various sizes and sounds all surrounding a 500-kilogram (which is more than half a ton) Odaiko drum. They start striking a Japanese taiko drum made from a 400-year-old tree with movements that use their bodies and souls to form a powerful surge of energy.

Suggested Ages: All, Adult Friendly
