STATE THEATRE PRESENTS YAMATO THE DRUMMERS OF JAPAN

(New Brunswick, NJ) -- State Theatre presents Yamato The Drummers of Japan - 'ROJYOH The Beat on the Road' on Tuesday, November 26, 2013 at 8pm. This tour celebrates the drummers' 20th anniversary. Tickets range from $35-65.


On the road celebrating their 20th anniversary, the Yamato Drummers program is a thrilling, high-energy, explosive performance of Japanese taiko drumming. The mesmeric and dynamic performers play drums that range from the size of a plate to huge barrel-like Odaikos. The sheer physical strength and movement of the drummers is as impressive as the music, combined with exquisite bronze cymbals, vocals, and bamboo flutes, creating a kaleidoscope of sound.

Yamato was founded in Japan's Nara Prefecture in 1993. The troupe has given over 2,600 performances in 52 countries and regions. Every year, Yamato tours the world for 6 to 10 months, creating and presenting original Yamato compositions and stages. As a result of this relentless tour schedule, pursued over more than 10 years, audiences around the world await their arrival every year in growing numbers.
