About

The Mark Stone Trio brings together celebrated world percussion traditions of Africa and India with the lyricism of the violin to create a vibrant new global soundscape. The trio performs new music that draws on Mark’s wide-ranging compositional influences, stretching from American jazz to traditional African music and classical Indian music to European concert music. In the group Mark plays the Ghanaian gyil, South African mbira, and American array mbira. His original compositions and arrangements for the trio combine the gyil and mbiras with violin and tabla/percussion to create an exciting new sound, which has been described as “an over-abundance of acoustic beauty, compositional creativity, and artful musicianship”
