Event Description

The PERCUNOVA Percussion Duo (Jonathan Ovalle & Neeraj Mehta) strives to bring contemporary art music and global percussion rhythms together through diverse repertoire and virtuosic performance. The duo made their international debut at the 2014 Mahidol University Brass and Percussion Conference in Bangkok, Thailand where they performed a full recital, gave educational clinics & workshops, and appeared with the Mahidol University Wind Ensemble as concerto soloists while in residence.  Following their Thailand debut, the duo toured India, where they presented performance workshops at seven international schools in the cities of Mumbai and Pune. More recently, the duo has been active performing and giving workshops at universities in the U.S.  including William Paterson University, Queens College, Colorado State University, University of Colorado-Denver,  and University of Denver.

With a collaboration history of ten years in a wide variety of musical genres, Jonathan Ovalle  & Neeraj Mehta have appeared together and independently throughout North America, Europe and Asia. Their experience includes performances at the Percussive Arts Society International Convention, The Midwest Clinic, Detroit International Jazz Festival, Art Tatum Heritage Jazz Festival, as well as numerous guest artist residencies including the Juilliard School, Northern Illinois University, the University of Texas A&M-Commerce, Baylor University, Butler University, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Their current work together as PERCUNOVA includes concertizing and developing repertoire which features contemporary duo percussion works, new commissions, transcriptions, and original co-composed and improvised music. Jonathan Ovalle and Neeraj Mehta are sponsored by Pearl/Adams, Innovative Percussion, Remo, and Zildjian.
