The Axis Trio

The Axis Percussion Trio:

Simon Bowhill                                              

David Boston                               

Richard Kensington

Dedicated to the study, performance and teaching of Afro Cuban based percussion music, the trio play a mixture of traditional and original material on congas, batá drums and drum kit. 

The Axis Trio was formed in 2009 when Simon, Rich and Dave decided to focus their energies on group playing rather than solely on individual study and band performance. Afro Cuban percussion traditions depend on groups of people playing together regulalry and developing a shared repertoire.
