Cross over percussion with the piano as melodic midpoint
In Skins & Keys, three percussionists from Germany, Iran, and Bangladesh, and a jazz pianist from Cuba join together in a quartet. How different music sounds when percussionists merge Oriental, Caribbean, and other percussion traditions, while the piano takes the melodic lead. Nils Fischer, Afra Mussawisade, Niti Ranjan Biswas, and Ramón Valle meet each other in improvisations where the melodic piano sets up a sturdy framework for the rhythm section.
