Simonsbath Festival 2013: Ricky Romain + Jon Sterckx
Simonsbath Festival’s exciting programme of world music continues with a concert of tradition and innovation.
Ricky Romain and Jon Sterckx will begin the evening with a series of light Indian pieces with a folk element and, by special request, after the interval Jon will give a performance of his astonishing Drumscapes, which has been wowing audiences across the country.
Created using a range of acoustic percussion instruments, vocal percussion and digital audio processing, Drumscapes range from highly energised rhythmical journeys to atmospheric percussion soundscapes.

Ricky Romain tour dates
A versatile percussionist based in Stroud, near Bristol, South West UK, Jon has worked across a wide range of musical styles, from traditional musical forms to contemporary experimental styles, theatre and dance collaborations, live percussion sampling (live looping) and fusion collaborations.
“Few percussionists, no matter how skilled, can captivate and keep an eager festival audience with a solo performance but Jon Sterckx’s stunning Drumscapes are a masterclass in control and rhythm that hook the audiences from the first beats and carry them through to an invariably ecstatic climax.
Centred on the tabla, darabuka and riq (a Middle Eastern tambourine) Jon combines beats and rhythms from across the globe with cutting edge sampling and innovative vocal sculpting, building layered soundscapes that mix the experimental with the traditional and creating a uniquely intoxicating, exhilarating and, many say, trance inducing performance quite unlike any other.” Musicport Festival 2015.
