Program Description
For more than 10 years, New York City–based musical powerhouse Percussia has thrilled audiences with its hard-driving global rhythms. Now you can experience Percussia in an interactive program in your own school or community. Based entirely on rhythmic grooves and global sounds, Drums Around the World brings the world of music directly to you. Percussia’s dazzling performers will take you on an interactive musical journey featuring percussion instruments, chants, and rhythms from around the world. With stops in Brazil, West Africa, Cuba, and China, this engaging, high-octane program deepens participants’ knowledge of world geography while giving them firsthand exposure to global cultures and music. Marvel at the visual spectacle of the instruments (a massive Chinese drum, and a beautifully carved African one) and participate in the show by clapping rhythms, singing songs, and even joining a Chinese Lion Dance. Percussia would be thrilled to join you at your next assembly or community event, kicking off the fun with its signature samba parade
