Heart-thumping rhythm, thunderous sounds and explosive beats, the Yamato drummers of Japan push their limits in this staggering display of physical strength and ferocious skill.

In this high-energy performance, the unmistakable sound of the traditional Taiko drum, used in Shinto rituals, is challenged by Yamato as they use their entire bodies to produce their breathtaking beats.

With drums that weigh up to half a tonne, the Yamato drummers’ remarkable physical strength and trademark infectious energy leaves you feeling totally exhilarated.

★★★★ "Exhilarating, feel-good... you'll want to join in"
