...it's Yamato.

I went to see the Japanese taiko drum group, Wadaiko Yamato, at Mercyhurst College today. They are freaking AWESOME. Mercyhurst was able to bring them in for 2 shows this year, and they sold out both! They could probably sell out a larger venue, but you definitely wouldn't get the same experience the smaller ones give you--namely, being able to feel the drumbeats as well as hear them.

The group, 5 men and 5 women, play with such joy and enthusiasm, it's contagious. One of the women playing the shamisen, a stringed instrument similar in sound to a banjo, really did play like a rock star. The drums range from smaller hand size ones to a huge one made from a 400-year-old tree. I just wish they came more often.
