A compilation of news paper reports:
Licca Percussiva brings music for rhythmic as well as for melodic percussion instruments. Their performances are of high quality regarded both from a musical and from an instrumental-technical point of view. Nevertheless, the music is very accessible. The concerts take the audience in to a world of melody and rhythm, spectacle and serenity, tension and relaxation and end in an enormous climax.
The musicians refuse to be fixed to one style only, with a repertoire ranging from classical percussion music to a wide range of ethnic drum music and avant-garde sound interpretation. The one constant is their desire for perfection and unique, virtuoso performance. The musicians of the ensemble use all conceivable and inconceivable means to realize their musical ideas.
Although the drum is one of humanity's most ancient instruments, Europe and America have only recently begun to explore its full potential, aided by explosions of influence and experimentation from around the world. In the 20th Century, musical innovators like John Cage, Steve Reich, and Iannis Xenakis brought these instruments out from behind the traditional orchestra and gave them a new voice.
