About the organizer
[[ The Bracket Percussion vzw ]]
The Bracket Percussion is an international percussion group formed by Adilia Yip (Hong Kong/ Belgium), Ricardo Lievano Flores and Juan Carlos Bonifaz (Mexico/Belgium), graduates of the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp since 2010. Full of creative synergy, cultural diversity and artistic versatility, the Brackets have become an interdisciplinary artistic platform that connects different musical cultures and art forms. We merge Western classical percussion music with Latin American, African and Asian traditions, as well as fusions between music and theatre, visual, literature and installation art. Our past performances include: the Festival of Spring-Cultures of China-Bozar Brussels, Sfinks Mixed Festival (two editions), De Grote Post Oostende, MAS Museum Antwerp-China Festival, Folklorissimo-festival of folklore music-Grote Markt Brussels, Landjuweel Festival Gent, De Centrale Gent, Permeke Bibliotheek Antwerp, De Boze Wolf-puppet theatre festival, Mundana Latin America Cultuurcentrum, Bleek Kunstcentrum and SGEM Conference Vienna, among others.
