Yamato Drummers: Chousensha – The Challengers at the Peacock Theatre

Peacock Theatre, Portugal Street, London, WC2A 2HT

Explosive energy and thunderous beats, the Yamato drummers of Japan are back.

The unmistakable sound of the traditional Taiko drum, used in Shinto rituals, is challenged by the Yamato drummers of Japan.

Drums weighing up to half a tonne are hit with ferocious skill, as each beat sends out a heart-thumping torrent of vibrations. In this high-energy, exhilirating performance, the drummers push their own limits in a staggering display of physical strength as they use their entire bodies to produce their thunderous music.

Age guidance: No under 5s.

Music: Live on Stage.

Yamato Drummers: Chousensha – The Challengers will run from 14 March 2017 until 25 March 2017 at the Peacock Theatre.
