Yamato the Drummers of Japan are back in Australia and will perform their new show "Passion" at Manning Entertainment Centre next Wednesday, August 21.
Since their hugely successful tour to Australia in 2017, the sensational Yamato Drummers of Japan has been incredibly busy this year alone playing a three-week season in London's West End and visiting Switzerland, Italy and Holland.
Now Australian audiences have the chance to hear the heart-thumping rhythm, thunderous sounds and explosive beats once again when Yamato tour to Queensland, then NSW from August 20, Victoria August 28, South Australia from August 30 and finishing in Western Australia from September 10.

Yamato's current show is aptly named "Passion" as the drummers launch into an explosion of energetic, highly rhythmic drumming, challenging and pushing themselves to their absolute limits. Using drums that weigh up to half a tonne, the drummers' remarkable physical strength and trademark infectious energy leave audiences exhilarated by this visually spectacular, high energy and explosive show.
Captivated by the distinctive boom of the enormous taiko drum, performers move their whole bodies to strike the drum with a powerful surge of energy that uplifts audiences in sync with the rhythm and intensity providing a dazzling with the perspective of the range of sound and mood drums are capable of.
The show at Manning Entertainment Centre starts at 7pm.
