Dramatic Accompaniment

Monday, January 21, 2013

This New Sounds brings musical accompaniment for drama in the form of the Portico Quartet, a young instrumental band, who play mostly acoustic music using wind instruments, bass and percussion, including a 21st century instrument called the hang.  (The hang is a dimpled dome-shaped, tuned metal percussion instrument that sounds like a cross between the steel drum and the mbira (thumb piano) and looks like two woks welded together.)
