Yamato's new show, Jhonetsu (Passion), is a thrilling, high-energy interpretation of the centuries-old Japanese taiko tradition. With virtuosity, strength, spirit, and sheer endurance, Yamato displays its breathtaking performance on more than 20 drums as well as with bronze cymbals, vocals, and bamboo flutes. This past season marked the group's 25th anniversary, celebrating over 3,500 performances in 54 countries, bringing infectious enthusiasm to over 8 million fans, young and old.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
