NEWARK – The Drummers of Japan, is an explosive troupe of Japanese taiko drummers that combines a sense of drama with the primal power of percussion, producing one of the world’s most physical forms of music.
Yamato, which takes the stage of NJPAC’s Prudential Hall on Friday, Nov. 18 at 8 p.m., performs with various sizes of drums, some of which are created from trees as old as 400 years, and adds timpani and flute for an evening of highly charged rhythm—from the patter of raindrops to the hammered-out beat of rolling thunder.
Tickets are $35-$70, and are available by telephone at 1-888-466-5722, at the NJPAC Box Office at One Center Street in downtown Newark, or at www.njpac.org. This performance is part of the Capital One Variety Series, made possible in part by Capital One, New Jersey State Council on the Arts and Discover Jersey Arts.
