Hosted by SIXTRUM and the Overseas Chinese Association – Montreal Chapter (OCA)
SIXTRUM and the OCA invite the Taiwanese ensemble Ju Percussion Group to perform for the first time in Montreal. Founded in 1986 by Zu Tzong-Ching (inducted into the Percussive Arts Society Hall of Fame in 2016), the Ju Percussion Group is made up of 17 full-time musicians who have presented more than 3000 shows in Taiwan and abroad during numerous international tours, and who have been commissioned to create as many as 235 pieces to date. The unique professional performances of the Ju Percussion Group have successfully captured the heights of the performing arts world and let the world hear the sound of Taiwan.
On August 23, 2019, in Montreal, Ju Percussion Group will present 5 of its most talented members in an ultra-dynamic program that combines contemporary creation with the inspiration of traditional Asian percussion, at the crossroads of tradition and modernity where oriental and occidental energies meet. This concert is a unique opportunity to discover this ensemble that is acknowledged by its government to be a cultural ambassador for Taiwan, and to see one of the world’s most famous percussion ensembles in action!
