Percurama percussion ensemble has originated from the forum surrounding professor Gert Mortensen at the Royal Danish Conservatory of Music in Copenhagen.
The constellation of students and teachers represent a vigorous and all-round section of the well-known Danish percussion scene. the number of players varies from 2 to 20, depending on the repetoire selected.
The Projects of Percurama are a broad spectrum of art creations: contemporary concerts, cross-over performances, drums and modern dance, world/ethno music, concerts for children, trash bangers, music theatre, percussion and choir, stone-sculpture-sound-collage, gamelan, play and paint, glassophone and even performance for agriculture machinery.
Common to all these activities is the fascination of the earthy, ritual power of drums, pulse and rythm created in a scenario of timbre, sound effects and huge instruments.
The ensemble collaborates frequently with distinguished Scandinavian composers, such as Per Nørgaard and askell Masson and has been touring in Europe, Asia, Africa, South America and USA.
