A different drum

The beat of Japan's traditional Wadaiko drums will resonate in Stephens Auditorium Oct. 25 (3 p.m.). The Yamato Drummers of Japan make Ames a stop on the U.S. portion of their world tour. The show fuses an energetic performance with the pulsing sounds of men and women playing a wide ensemble of drum sizes. Tickets are $37 or $33 for adults, $25 for youth and $20 for ISU students, and available at the Stephens box office, or through Ticketmaster. Photo by Lucienne van der Mijle.
