Percurama

The Academy's percussion ensemble has been touring in Europe, Asia and Africa

Percurama Percussion Ensemble has originated from the forum surrounding professor Gert Mortensen at The Royal Danish Academy of Music.

The constellation of students and teachers represents 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 repertoire selected.

The projects of Percurama cover a wide spectrum of artistic genres. Common to all activities is the fascination of the ritual primitive forces of drums, pulse and rhythm created in a scenario of timbre, sound effects and huge instruments.

The ensemble collaborates regularly with distinguished Scandinavian composers such as Per Nørgård and Áskell Másson and has toured through Europe, Asia, Africa, South America and USA.
