The York College Groove Ensemble is a percussion ensemble with a twist. It includes many traditional percussion instruments, as well as guitars, basses, keyboards, digital samplers, electronic drum machines and turntables. Groove performs traditional music from around the world, including West Africa, South Africa, and Indonesia. The group also performs music in the modern classical style, including the music of Steve Reich and Philip Glass. Student compositions are also featured on a regular basis. A typical concert may feature anything from Zimbabwean dance music to hip-hop.
