THE NC RHYTHM PROJECT
Jim Roberts is a cross-cultural world percussionist and native North Carolinian.  He percusses with all matter of music making idiophones and membranophones.  From West African djembe and hand percussion to drum set with electronic goodies and high tinkly hypnotic devices, Jim isn’t afraid to try something new or unexplored. His North Carolina Rhythm Project is an Experimental Improvisatory group designed to explore the boundaries of sound, rhythm and texture.

Each show features different combinations of highly intuitive musicians. This concert features 3 additional percussionists from NC.  They are Beverly Botsford, Robert Cantrell and Rich Holly.  Each of these percussionists has a distinguished career in the percussive arts and brings different cultural expertise to the mix of music being presented.  The show draws upon their experience to improvise in the many disciplines of percussion including African, Brazilian and Cuban music, jazz, classical, pop, rock, drum corps, electronica and more.
