This video is one scene of “The Self-Defense Forces Festival” held at Nihon Budokan annually.
More than 100 members play various types of Wadaiko. The title is “This is a Japanese drum line!” Yes. It’s exactly like Japanese drum line!
Wow. It sounds like thunder when everyone plays!!!
I wanted to be there…!!!
I really wanted to be there to listen to that gorgeous play! But I might not be able to listen to anything except for the specific sound…!! +92
I watched this direct. If you have a chance, you should not miss it!
Definitely! You should listen to that with passion!
Great. It might be such a great energy!!!
Do they use such many drums?
I know Taiko makes the sound like trembling the ground, but I cannot imagine how could I feel in real! +5
Well, you could feel the beat in your heart rather than in stomach. There are so many drums, so heart would beat each time they play. But definitely it’s worth watching at least once in my life. My eyes would be useless if I don’t use earplug, though… w +33
How do players hear? w
I wanted to watch this in real. Personal discipline and all harmony is amazing. I just thought it’s beautiful by watching this video.
Amazing. How much harmony does this play have?!
If I could listen to that in real, it might be a great experience.
Watch and listen to this video with a headset. Wowwwww!!!
Even with this video, I felt like I could feel the vibration of drums.
I understand why Samurai was strong by listening to this drums sound and impact…
I have too much goose-flesh and becoming a bird human!
Even I don’t listen to this directly… It’s very amazing!!
Japanese preciseness always makes me surprised.
My father is army and scary.
When I does something bad, I need to wait for him coming back…
When his car is arriving to home, I feel this sound in my head recently… +3
It looks like everyone does karate chops to that huge drum! w
There so many people, but their action is synchronized perfectly…. wow.
Definitely “Japanese Drum Line”
I just thought.. if the sound is visualized, how does the hall become like?
What Japanese do is always beyond coolness!!
So much strength and passion would be needed to play this play. Very nice !!!
There are many Ryu of Street Fighter…. +57
Just imagine you were a Japanese fighters in 1500s… You listen to this sound when you move to the enemy… You might have a huge fighting spirit! +72
It’s not only for raising fighting spirits, but also scares enemies. Enemies must think “How many troops would come to attack?”
When I can visit Japan, I wanna try this drum. :)
Human creates thunder…? Amazing!!!
God of thunder comes for this play. Cool! +4
I would be scared if I hear from somewhere. The sound of big drum is scary!! It’s terrific!!
Incredible. If I could hear this in real.. I just can image that.
I went to the live of Yamato and Kodou, we could feel the vibration not only listen to the sound of drums. But it’s.. WOW… I could give anything if I could be there…
