PERCUSSION PLEIN AIR is a place where to restart your being, through movement and sound, reconnecting with your natural source of energy. This is a place where to remember how it was to be surprised of the unknown and learn it, like back in childhood - without any goals, rates and requirements set. This is the place where, along with everyday masks, you drop everything you don't need from both the physical and energetic body. It's a place where to share your uniqueness - be who you are and celebrate it in an international, open-minded and open-hearted company in daytime master classes, sharing meals along one family table, and evening jam sessions around the campfire.
