Confluence - Second Half - Percussion Ensemble - Clip
The most flamboyant side of Indian Classical Music is often found in its scintillating drum beats! Displaying intricate and musical rhythm patterns, six young but super talented percussionists come together to form the Rhythm Ensemble. Featuring musicians from both Samyo, The National Indian Music Youth Orchestra, and Tarang, The National Ensemble, they present a rare sound harnessing the power of percussion instruments from India.
Percussion ensembles offer a thrilling listening experience as they're classical, jazz and avant garde all rolled into one. Indian percussion is unique in the world of music, with its own language and syllables, the potential for melodies, and its wonderfully complex mathematical patterns. More often than not, they're also experimental and eager to push the envelope. Sit back and enjoy!
