Tambuco Percussion Ensemble

General Audience
New music

Considered a national treasure in Mexico, four-time Grammy nominee Tambuco is one of the most dynamic and innovative chamber percussion ensembles today.

“The music explored the outer dimensions of percussive sound, and the Cuarteto worked wonders with myriad instruments and even the musicians’ bodies (hands, wrists, fingertips, voices). . . unmistakable technical virtuosity.” Washington Post

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Four of the world’s very top percussionists, the Tambuco players are masters of both contemporary and vernacular styles. “Mesmerizing creativity…subtle and forceful artistry…,” comments Gramophone, “ the members of Tambuco are chameleons on dozens of instruments.” Touring the globe for a quarter century, the quartet is sought after by partners like Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Phil for projects like the orchestra’s special centennial commission from Gabriela Ortiz. Don’t miss their breathtaking performance for the Library’s annual Founder’s Day concert, coming to us from their studio in Veracruz, Mexico.
