“Ensemble Bash make playing percussion the coolest, noisiest and funniest occupation on earth.” The Times
Here’s something to cheer a dull January!
Formed in 1992, the British percussion quartet Ensemble Bash has a reputation as one of the world’s most innovative and ground-breaking chamber ensembles.
Using the music of West Africa as both core repertoire and a guiding spiritual influence, Ensemble Bash mixes contemporary classical, jazz and music theatre into unforgettable performances.
Since its inception Ensemble Bash has been dedicated to commissioning new repertoire for percussion ensemble and has developed special relationships with composers including Graham Fitkin, Stephen Montague, Nick Hayes, Howard Skempton and Stewart Copeland.
Ensemble Bash has toured the UK and Europe extensively, including regular appearances at the Southbank Centre and BBC Proms, and performing world premieres of works by Eric Whitacre and Imogen Heap. From the 2018/19 season and lasting three years, the group will be Ensemble in Residence at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. In 2013 and then again in 2018, Ensemble Bash were featured artists at the RNCM Percussion Festival.
Ensemble Bash is supported by Bell Percussion and the PRS Foundation.
