Event details

Making their Vancouver debut at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, the dynamic and masterly Yamato Drummers of Japan, described as "the U2 of Taiko drumming," present a heart-thumping, athletically charged spectacle that showcases their remarkable strength, expertise and unmistakable sound.

Yamato's one-night only, big budget engagement will feature the company's newest production Bakuon - a ferocious, hypnotic mix of theatrics, agility and rapid-fire speed.

For the players of Yamato, every encounter with our listeners is a unique and precious experience. Our greatest goal is to send our audiences home after each performance with a new vitality and passion for life. As we continue to tour and perform throughout Japan and around the world, whether in concerts, classrooms, school assemblies or workshops, our troupe will continue to cherish and uphold Yamato, the spirit of Japan.
