descriptions, reviews, &c.

(frantic: feverish, raging, beside himself)
They are feverishly searching for new grooves, sounds and media, maddened by curiosity when discovering and exploring new percussive worlds, beside themselvesJoy of playing on the street and on stage - the seven musicians of the "frantic percussion ensemble" from Lüneburg/Germany. They are young, cheeky, have skill, passion and the wonderful charm of the fresh - in short: frantic percussion has the license to take your breath away and carry you away. Totally legal.
