"Chousensha" – The Challengers
YAMATO: The Drummers of Japan
World Tour 2018

"A brilliant show of sound and stage!" - La Gaceta (Spain)
"This is a show of unbridled entusiasm, much humour and great musical variety." - The Scotsman (UK)

Since its formation in 1993, the high-energy drum troupe “YAMATO” has traveled the world with traditional Japanese taiko drums, presenting over 3,500 performances in 53 countries and sharing their energy with over 6 million people! YAMATO explores the possibilities of this traditional Japanese instrument, bringing new life to contemporary taiko drumming while paying respect to its rich history.

Their newest program, "The Challengers" offers reflection on the members’ feelings about their own lives and their experiences of being pushed to challenge their own limits. Most of all, "The Challengers" serves as an anthem of encouragement for all who were born in this same era and continue to face their own challenges. 

Collaborating for the first time with an international fashion designer, YAMATO will be wearing new outfits designed by Kansai Yamamoto who also produces his own shows. Wearing these costumes assists YAMATO in channeling themselves as they continue to focus on their slogan: "We will travel wherever we are invited to give energy to the world!"
