SYMPHONY SUNDAY: YAMATO

This is a special Symphony Sunday. I just saw this show in person, literally less than an hour ago.

Yamato is a Japanese drumming group, who performs on "taiko" drums. They combine drumming, other Japanese instruments, chanting, humor, acrobatics, athleticism, and amazing visual effects for a whole show that just takes your breath away. You can feel the music in your body from the moment the show starts.

I was literally sitting in the very back row of the balcony, and I was still so engaged, and felt so a part of what was going on on stage. The energy of the performers was amazing.

This clip does not do them justice. If you ever have a chance to see this group live, I highly recommend it!
