TABLACENTRIC: Hands On’Semble

Hands On’Semble is a contemporary percussion ensemble devoted to the art of hand drumming. Founded in 1997 by renowned percussion vanguard John Bergamo, along with Randy Gloss, Andrew Grueschow, and Austin Wrinkle, the group has developed a repertoire of original compositions blending rhythmic concepts, forms, and techniques from North and South India, the Middle East, West Africa, Indonesia, South America, western chamber music, and jazz. We had the honor of hosting them a couple years ago during our difficult music series and our minds were blown.
