Led by composer/multi-percussionist Mark Stone, the group brings together celebrated world percussion traditions of Africa and India with the lyricism of cello and saxophone. Stone Sound Collective performs new music drawing on Stone's wide-ranging compositional influences, stretching from American jazz to traditional African music and classical Indian music to European concert music.
