A traditional Japanese drum

I will introduce a traditional Japanese drum. There are several traditional Japanese instruments, but the drum is the most famous and popular instrument in Japan. The size of the drum varies from large to small, and the playing style also varies. Sometimes they are played by a person and sometimes they are played by a group. When a group plays them, the sound has a beautiful harmony.

This is Kodo's promotional video. Kodo is one of the most famous groups that played the drum. Enjoy the sound. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CzOVthBhxnE
