NEW: Drum Café
Voice and percussion were the first and the strongest musical instruments through all periods and civilizations. They have accompanied every important event in human life: from life's rituals and passages (birth, initiation, death, ...), religious rituals, social life, meditations and even wars.
The CD Drum Café brings a fresh selection of music for voices and percussion instruments. The connection between singing and drumming is a challenge for many contemporary composers and their works are an interesting counterpoint to the music based on folk tradition.
This diverse program consists of works coloured by the ethnic flair of the European North and East in their typical vocal techniques, Indian chants and avant-garde chamber music arranged for voice and percussion.
