Performing Arts Center Presents: YAMATO – The Drummers of Japan
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. On stage are more than 40 Taiko drums and all of them have different characters. For example, their largest drum called “Odaiko”, produced from a huge tree over 400 years old, is approximately two meters in diameter and weighs 500 kg. All other Taiko drums are different sizes and have different sounds. YAMATO does not simply make their Taiko drums explode with sound; they produce delicate music that provides the listener with a palette of meticulously crafted sound.
Admission starts at $39.00. Visit the PAC’s website for tickets and more information.
