About Drum of the Deathless (Duo)
An exciting version of this work for two percussionists playing a large array of percussion instruments. The rhythms developed here were inspired by ritual drumming at a Korean monastery, as well as Tibetan Buddhist chanting and Indian Tala technique. The title of the work is taken from a defining moment in the Pali Canon which chronicles the Buddha’s life.
