Described as “the pulse of the gods” by Hanover, Germany’s Neue Presse, YAMATO The Drummers of Japan erupt with a thunderous energy in their newest program, Jhonetsu, meaning “passion.” An Asheville fan favorite from seasons past, Yamato’s drummers modernize a centuries-old Taiko tradition to create a thrilling, high-energy ride full of heart-thumping rhythms and explosive beats. Yamato is internationally recognized for its exhilarating performances — described as “pure energy meets spiritual high,” by Edinburgh’s The Scotsman. Strength, spirit and sheer endurance shine through in Yamato’s drummers, whose passion for performance is both joyous and entertaining. This season, the drummers return with dozens of impressive instruments, including a massive, 1,100-pound Odaiko drum.
