Since its launch in 1993, TIPC has gone from strength to strength, and is widely considered one of the most important international percussion events in the world.
The triennial Taiwan International Percussion Convention was back this year sponsored by the Taipei-based Ju Percussion Group and featured top percussion groups and solo artists from 14 countries.
I had the great honor to be invited to perform at this great event with the RENATO MARTINS TRIO, playing concerts at the following venues:
Chung Cheng Auditorium, National Chiao Tung University, Hsinchu
National Concert Hall, Taipei
Performance Hall of Tainan Municipal Cultural Center, Tainan
Sunshine Meadow – Xinzhuang Stadium, New Taipei City
Wei-Wu-Ying Center for the Arts, Kaohsiung
It was absolutely great the atmosphere provided by both caring and welcoming staff and the percussionists participating.
Thanks to everyone for such special moments! Thanks to Manu and Boris for your beautiful playing!
Here you find some pictures from the event, also a video from our performance at the National Concert Hall in Taipei. Enjoy!
