Percussion: Beyond the Human Voice

Back at the beginning of time, the human voice was the very first instrument. Probably close in second place were folks banging on stuff – in other words, percussionists.

Chicago-based Third Coast Percussion takes primordial pounding into a completely distinctive new league. In this NPR Tiny Desk performance, they’ll play their sophisticated, modern marimbas and vibraphones, but be on the lookout for the subtleties of tuned cowbells and 3/4″ galvanized steel pipes, like those found at the local hardware store.
