Percussia, a New York City-based chamber music ensemble, makes percussion the foundation for a new sound.
Playing both world and Western percussion instruments, the group melds the music of different lands into its own contemporary soundscape. The resulting international music crosses genres, styles, and cultural boundaries, connecting people through the common thread of percussion.
Percussia's varied repertoire is a mixture of contemporary chamber music, world and folk music styles, and original arrangements. While percussion takes center stage, the group blends its rhythms with melodic instruments for an added dimension.
