Arts Commons Presents (Family Fun Calgary)

YAMATO was founded by Masa Ogawa in 1993 in Nara, “the land of Yamato,” which is said to be the birthplace of Japanese culture. The group is now based in Asuka Village, where they keep a rigorous training schedule so they can attain performance-level precision when they travel worldwide. Each show features 40 drums, including an enormous 500 kg drum called an “Odaiko.” YAMATO – The Drummers of Japan will shake the walls of the Jack Singer Concert Hall with their new show. In Hinotori, meaning “phoenix,” they celebrate the rebirth of live shows from the ashes through storytelling, masterful drum performance, and light-hearted fun. It’s powerful, athletic, and loud! YAMATO is completely engaging and is the perfect winter escape for your family.
