“Go anywhere if invited and make the world a little more happy” is Yamato’s motto. With 150-200 performances a year worldwide, Yamato travels all over the world with Japan’s traditional Wadaiko drums, putting its very souls into the unusual instruments, whose sound stirs the hearts of people everywhere. With the sound of the drums as a pulse or heartbeat, Yamato attempts to create the energy of life, which envelops the audience and performers. The pulse, carried down from antiquity, will resonate within all the bodies gathered at any given performance.
