JOIA!! Bright, brilliant, clear and shining jewel is the translation from Portuguese. The musical translation in st. louis is a dynamic, mobile world percussion ensemble with a contagious, primal pulse.
Led by Rick Kramer, Joia is not only a band, but a musical community based on the concept of making the experience of percussion performance accessible to anyone with the combination of desire and commitment.
Different and evolving configurations of personnel perform a core repertoire of music steeped in the traditions of Brazil, Africa, Cuba, Japan and other world music forms.
