‘Ensemble Bash’s name does scant justice to their subtlety, virtuosity and global outlook, although it does hint at the mad humour and loose-limbed jiving that enlivens their shows.’  THE TIMES

Ensemble Bash makes playing percussion ‘the coolest, noisiest and funniest occupation on Earth’ (The Times). The bubbling feel-good rhythms of African music bounce off music by three Americans: Michael Daugherty, Stephen Montague and the drummer and bebop pioneer, Max Roach.

Free, un-ticketed event; first-come, first-served.
