Show was great but It needs a little variety as it can get boring after a while. It was good that they got the audience to participate which made the show more enjoyable.

Description

Fun for the whole family! See the Yamato Drummers in a thrilling, high-energy, explosive performance of Japanese taiko drumming! The mesmeric and dynamic performers play drums that range from the size of a plate to huge barrel-like Odaikos! The sheer physical strength and movement of the drummers is as impressive as the music, combined with exquisite bronze cymbals, vocals, and bamboo flutes, Yamato creates a kaleidoscope of sound.

Founded in 1993 in Nara—considered the birthplace of Japanese culture—the master drummers of Yamato are young, modern, and brimming with infectious energy as they take the ancient art of taiko drumming and bring it to the present.
