Drumming the Night Away

Sunday we went to the University of Arizona for one of their World Music concerts – the Yamato Drummers of Japan. Normally this is not something we would buy tickets for, but once I saw the Beijing acrobats many yeas ago, I knew that all things Asian would be wonderful, so I convinced hubby to get the tickets. Nosebleed seats, but it was the music….theatricality, athleticism, and amazing drumming!

We sat entranced for 9o minutes, and the applause was thunderous at the end – a demand for a curtain call from the audience, and we were treated to more amazing drumming – all sizes, all shapes, with wrist movements you have to see to believe!

So enjoy!

This was the encore they did.
