Notes and Editorial Reviews

Formed in 1992, the British percussion quartet ensemblebash has forged a reputation as one of the world’s most innovative and groundbreaking chamber ensembles. Using the music of West Africa as both core repertoire and a guiding spiritual influence, ensemblebash mixes contemporary classical, jazz and music theatre into unforgettable performances.

This new recording marks 20 years since the formation of the group, with the programme made up of some of their best commissions from the 2002 to 2012.

"ensemblebash, who make playing percussion the coolest, noisiest and funniest occupation on earth." The Times

"A marvellous CD from the Bashers to show off your newest playing equipment.
Read more Most of it is not loud; intricate subtleties from these multi-instrumentalists dominate the listening experience." Musical Pointers Read less
