Legendary New York minimalist Steve Reich travelled to Africa to study traditional drumming techniques with master-drummer Gideon Alorwoyie. The result was Drumming: a 90-minute journey for percussion and female voices that, at the time of its 1971 premiere, redefined Western music's relationship with rhythm. Moving from drums through the glowing resonance of glockenspiels and marimbas and voices, Drumming is a primeval and uplifting experience engaging both mind and body.
