Joby Burgess

One of Britain’s most diverse percussionists, Joby is best known for his virtuosic, often lissom performances, daring collaborations, extensive education work, and regularly appears throughout Europe, the USA and beyond.

Joby spends much of his time commissioning and recording new music with Ensemble Bash, New Noise and most notably the audio visual collective Powerplant. Recent highlights have included extensive tours with Peter Gabriel’s New Blood Orchestra and the premiere of Gabriel Prokofiev’s Concerto for Bass Drum and Orchestra.

Joby regularly performs, records and collaborates with artists including Stewart Copeland, Murray Gold, Joanna MacGregor, Peter Maxwell Davies, Nitin Sawhney and Eric Whitacre along with many of the world’s leading chamber ensembles. Each year Joby gives master-classes and leads numerous creative workshops focusing on rhythm, composition and improvisation.
