With a thunderous pulse and rhythmic beats that envelop the entire audience, Japanese drummers Yamato create a percussive sound that stirs the hearts of people everywhere. Founded in 1993 in Nara, Japan, ‘the land of Yamato” is said to be the birthplace of Japanese culture. These highly-trained performers travel the world over with Japan’s traditional Wadaiko drums － made of animal skin and ancient trees, some of which are more than 400 years old －recreating the pulse, or “Shin-On,” which is carried down from antiquity and resonates within all bodies.
