Yamato Drummers

mr.ncot and I have just been to the most amazing concert in the Kongresshalle in Zürich. We saw the japanese Yamato drummers (watch a video of them here), who were just sensational. Big drums, little drums, deep drums, enormous drums, drums whose sound reached down inside you to your toes, little cymbals and other related instruments. Their timing and performance skills were fantastic. And there was just so much energy radiating from the stage. There were 10 drummers, 4 female and 6 male, and they all had shoulder/arm muscles to die for. They reminded me a little bit of Stomp, which I saw twice in London. A great evening, especially needed after a frustrating day in work. The other positive thing about today was that it was sunny and as we passed the lake this evening, I could see the mountains clearly at the other end....
