The first Percussion Festival of the GNO Alternative Stage unfurls before us the full spectrum of this fascinating sound-world, in a series of events ranging from special workshops and masterclasses to unique concerts with distinguished ensembles and soloists, and from the most enchanting traditions of world music to the most sophisticated aspects of Western modernity.

Exploring the innately democratic nature of percussive sound production, the Festival hosts an eclectic series of educational options: experiential body percussion workshops for children, workshops on the sensory perception of sound and self-motivation, presentations on world music styles such as percussion music from the Eastern Mediterranean, Africa and Japan, the traditions of flamenco, samba and colonial American drumming, as well as masterclasses on marimba, vibraphone and timpani playing as well as analogue and digital drum sound processing.

At the same time, the GNO Alternative Stage's audience will have the chance to enjoy a rich concert schedule featuring important performers, companies, and musical ensembles.

The full programme for the Festival will be announced soon.

The production GNO ALTERNATIVE STAGE PERCUSSION FESTIVAL is part of the GNO Alternative Stage's unit of programming titled PERCUSSION FESTIVAL, which falls under the ACT FESTIVAL EVENTS OF THE GNO ALTERNATIVE STAGE 2024-2025 (MIS 6002467) with code 202408570049 (Priority: Fostering regional social cohesion through the enhancement of mechanisms and infrastructure to support employment, education, health care and socioeconomic inclusion of the programme Attica 2021-2027) and is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and National Resources.
