Bakuon at Stanford Bing Concert Hall

YAMATO 620x437The 2015-16 Music, Dance and Theatre season begins at Stanford Bing Concert Hall with taiko legends Yamato—Drummers of Japan.  Prized for its percussive power and theatrical flair, this 17-piece ensemble makes contemporary music filled with the fierce, ancient sound of Japanese taiko drums that were traditionally played at sacred Shinto ceremonies and to spur soldiers to battle. Playing drums as big as six-feet wide, cymbals, and flutes, this rousing group, applauded by the Boston Globe for its “keen sense of drama, humor, and verve,” stirs the pulse and spirit with its show Bakuon – Legend of the Heartbeat.
