“Jhonetsu- Passion” captures Yamato’s virtuosity, strength, spirit and sheer endurance. This past season marked Yamato’s 26th anniversary, celebrating over 4,000 performances in 54 countries, bringing our enthusiasm to over 8 million fans young and old. Audience spirits are lifted to new levels with our drummers infectious sense of joy and entertainment. Lighting the fire of the passion held within our bodies and honoring the drumbeat since, like the heartbeat, it is the very pulse of life.

Yamato was founded in Japan’s Nara Prefecture in 1993. 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 our arrival every year in growing numbers, sustaining and encouraging our efforts more than words can express.

For the players of Yamato, every encounter with listeners is a unique and precious experience.  Their greatest goal is to send our audiences home after each performance with a new vitality and passion for life. As we continue to tour and perform throughout Japan and around the world, whether in concerts, classrooms, school assemblies or workshops, their troupe will continue to cherish and uphold Yamato, the spirit of Japan.
