Grades: 4 - 8

Experience the next generation of Taiko drummers! The Yamato drummers reveal a contemporary take on a musical instrument whose rich reverberations have filled people with inspiration since the dawn of history. Yamato was founded in 1993 in Nara, ‘the land of Yamato,’ which is said to be the birthplace of Japanese culture. The performers believe the sound of the drums to be the pulse or heartbeat, the center of life, which pulsates within the human body. Their powerful performance attempts to recreate this heartbeat – the energy of life.
