The Drummers of Japan

The internationally acclaimed Yamato—The Drummers of Japan ensemble are coming to Poland again, this time with their latest show, entitled Gamushara.

Yamato deliver spectacular shows that focus on the art of playing traditional drums called taiko. In their performances, Yamato combine the sound of the taiko with that of traditional Japanese string instruments—such as the koto, chappa, shino-bue, samisen and kane—giving rousing interpretations of the music and religious traditions of the Land of the Rising Sun.

Each show is an unusual listening and viewing experience owing to several dozen drums up to 5 meters in diameter and drumsticks weighing up to 3.5 kilograms. The fantastic shows take up so much energy that afterwards the performers need 12 hours to recover.

The Japanese drummers, including several women, captivate audiences with their choreography and sound. Yamato provide amazing energy, acrobatics, a great sense of humor and colorful, original Japanese outfits.

Since they were formed in 1993, Yamato have toured the world giving over 3,500 concerts to date. In 1998, Yamato took part in the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh and won the Fringe Award.
