March 29 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm| $47.50 and up
Returning for the third time by popular demand, your whole family will share the heart-pounding excitement of Japan’s most popular Taiko ensemble. Yamato has performed for more than 25 years, bringing their jaw-dropping power and athleticism to 54 nations. Jhonetsu (Passion) captures Yamato’s virtuosity, strength, spirit, and sheer endurance. These dedicated artists live together in a community and create each element of their performance themselves, including the music, choreography, costumes, and props.
To many Japanese people, Taiko drumming is a force that resounds at Shinto rituals and festivals in every part of the nation. The instrument, Yamato musicians believe, represents the identity of Japan. Thanks to Yamato and other troupes like them, the infectious spirit of Taiko has won new fans around the world.
