The story of taiko drums has roots in the ancient history of Japan. At the first sounding of these drums, people would stop working and follow the drummers, celebrating the joy of life. World-famous Japanese Yamato drummers played in Zagreb in 2010 and will be back on 26 February, 2012 to play in Concert hall Drazen Petrovic.

Since its creation in 1993, the group has done over one thousand live performances to over one million people in more than 20 countries in Asia, Europe, and the Americas. The group has grown from four to seventeen now and apart from the usual concerts works on many activities involving schools and teaching. They use more than 50 drums on the scene and their characteristics are synchronicity, concentracion, coordination and huge energy.
