Yamato – Passion @ The Peacock
Mar 12 – Mar 31 all-day
Yamato - Passion @ The Peacock | England | United Kingdom

As the Japanese taiko drumming troupe make their way back to London, they bring with them the Odaiko drums. These traditional drums, used in Shinto rituals, weigh over half a tonne each, and require exceptional skill and physicality to produce each floor-shaking note.

Dedicated to their art, the Yamato drummers train ferociously. On stage, they display a staggering strength, using their entire bodies to play and share with their audiences an intense passion that comes out in their pounding, high-energy and thrillingly thunderous performances.

“Primal, exhilarating; you want to do it too”
