For centuries and in all corners of the globe, drums have been used as a part of society. Their sound reawakens a primal rhythm that resides in all humans, and play a role in building interconnected communities and help to tell stories of our past. 

About 2,000 years ago, drums from Japan were used in multiple facets of life. From myths and stories about their ancestors, to ceremonies and celebrations; the Japanese drum has played a significant role in Japanese society.
