Last week we had the awesome opportunity to see the Yamato Japanese drummers in concert! We ALL went, including Auntie Aliyah who helped us with the boys. (Thank you, Auntie Aliyah!)
I wasn’t sure what to expect of a drum concert, except that we were told beforehand that it would be really loud! We therefore left Ben’s hearing aids behind, and got seats near the front row in the balcony. We actually had an aisle right in front of us, so the view was great, and we had easy access in and out of our seats, definitely a plus since we have three small kids.
The drummers were so energetic, and the concert was amazing! We had such a great time. Besides drums, there were other traditional Japanese instruments, and the concert was interactive and very entertaining for adults and kids. Ben stayed awake the entire time, and really enjoyed all the drumming, music and clapping. Isaac and Jonny fell asleep on the ride home, but were fine going to school the next day.
We loved the concert so much that we bought their DVD, and I hope we get to see them again someday.
