Cosmos Percussion Orchestra
The Bay Area’s Premiere World Fusion Ensemble
Cosmos Percussion Orchestra is a unique ensemble of five accomplished percussionists and three amazing melodic musicians. Together they create and perform highly energized percussion based material. The genesis of their music comes through their passion and respect for both traditional and original fusion pathways, inclusive of African, Latin, Funk, Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, Rock, Middle Eastern and World Beat. All of these form Cosmos Percussion Orchestra’s original World Fusion.
Cosmos Percussion Orchestra’s performances engage their audiences, eliciting a wonderful response to the band's wide range of musical expression. “We love the music we create, and we connect with our audiences through the energy of the poly rhythms and joyful dynamic of our inclusive performance.” The audience’s experiential response becomes an integral part of their shows, people are on their feet.
The seductive rhythms and layered melody create a rich musical texture. Cosmos Percussion Orchestra brings more than forty five divergent drums to the stage, driving percussive rhythms shaped by strong Bass, melodic keys and guitar, with the addition of flute, violin, and an array of unique instruments.
Cosmos Percussion Orchestra is often joined by special musical guests and dance groups.
