The Yamato drummers of Japan are touring Australia this month including a stop by Wollongong on August 22.
The group is made up of 14 musicians, male and female, who all hail from Japan's Nara Prefecture.
This year marks Yamato's 25th anniversary, celebrating over 3,700 performances in 54 countries, reaching over 7 million fans young and old presenting a thrilling, high-energy and explosive interpretation of the centuries old Taiko tradition.
Yamato's current show, Passion, involves "an explosion of energetic, highly rhythmic drumming, challenging and pushing themselves to their absolute limits", according to organisers.
While the musicians will use drums that weigh up to half a tonne.
