Ju Percussion Group: Energy ∞ Infinite
Promising a musical explosion fit for the biggest concert halls, renowned Taiwanese Ju Percussion Group (JPG) is finally coming to Aotearoa.
Founded by visionary percussionist Ju TzongChing in 1986, JPG is a 13-strong percussion supergroup, plus one composer in residence, who blend East with West through impressive technique. Huge in scale, JPG’s concerts place classical instruments within Asian theatrical elements to deliver a sound that is traditional yet modern, and playful yet virtuoso.
JPG will present compositions that inspire musical imagination, evoke the sights and sounds of Taiwan, and above all demonstrate the power and thrill of pure percussion. ‘Kyoto’, a piece by John Psathas dedicated to JPG on its 25th anniversary, will also be performed in honour of one of our finest composers.

“Nothing short of awesome.”
“If there was a common identifying bond in this music it was the energy – the delight in sheer muscular extroversion – with which [their instruments] were struck”
