Yamato is a Japanese Taiko drumming group based in Asuka-mura Nara Prefecture, which is well known by Japanese people as the hometown of Japan. They call themselves “Yamato, the Taiko drumming group that travels all over the world.”
Performing in theaters, schools and all types of events, including workshops and Taiko lessons, Yamato will take the intimate VPAC stage with a variety of drums in different sizes and sounds. The acoustic-friendliness of the venue pairs perfectly with the exploding sounds of the drums, the delicateness of the instruments and a meticulously crafted sound.
“The modern Taiko troupe offers a genuinely theatrical experience, delivered with balletic grace and infectious humor,” writes Times UK.
