Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Drumming is an immense sound machine which, while holding its ensemble of percussionists and vocalists in a firm grip, also gives them the means to exult in the immediacy of performance. The rhythmic processes as well as a renewed sense of communality in music-making came out of Soho as well as Africa. Performers and listeners are as one, exploring notions of sound and time..." - Steve Reich
