A percussion sound is born from a repetition of blows with rhythmic patterns. Percussion instruments are the oldest, the ones that first made our ancestors dance. They are deep, primal, and awake our most hidden and wild nature, possess us, lead us to a trance, an overflowing emotion. So you cannot miss Percumón, the first edition of the International Percussion Festival, held on the next 3rd, 4th and 5th of June, in the Valencian towns of Sagunto and Puerto de Sagunto.
Fun, learning and cultural exchange will set the pace of a festival full of joys.
