Yamato was founded in Japan’s Nara Prefecture in 1993. The troupe has given over 4,000 performances in 54 countries and regions. Every year, Yamato tours the world for 6 to 10 months, creating and presenting original Yamato compositions and stages.
As a result of a relentless tour schedule, pursued over more than 10 years, audiences around the world await our arrival every year in growing numbers, sustaining, and encouraging our efforts more than words can express.
For the players of Yamato, every encounter with listeners is a unique and precious experience. Their greatest goal is to send audiences home after each performance with a new vitality and passion for life. As they continue to tour and perform throughout Japan and around the world, whether, in concerts, classrooms, school assemblies, or workshops, the troupe will continue to cherish and uphold Yamato, the spirit of Japan.
