For more than 16 years, Quey [“Kway”] Percussion Duo has
dazzled audiences worldwide with their unmistakable style that
blends traditions of Western percussion, “world,” contemporary,
classical, and popular music to create colorful sound worlds that often
place focus on interlocking counterpoint and musical multi-tasking.
