Talujon (tal-loo-zhon) n. a four-member drum ensemble that performs classic and new music using traditional — and not-so-traditional — instruments — as defined by Mary Alice Bitts, Intelligencer Journal

The New York-based percussion quartet, Talujon, will visit the McIntire Department of Music on March 24-25. While here, Talujon will rehearse new pieces created for them by outstanding graduate composers.

Talujon will perform the graduate compositions in a concert, free and open to the public, March 25 at 8 p.m., in Old Cabell Hall Auditorium. For information call the Cabell Hall Box Office at 924-3984.

Described by the New York Times as an ensemble possessing an “edgy, unflagging energy,” the Talujon Percussion Quartet has been mesmerizing audiences for more than 13 years. The Village Voice proclaimed that members David Cossin, Dominic Donato, Tom Kolor and Michael Lipsey were “drum wizards.”
