Niels van Hoorn plays in percussion group Percossa, alongside Janwillem van der Poll, René Spierings en Eric Robillard.
Niels van Hoorn is a member of Percossa since 1994. The group is an ideal outlet for his musical output that springs from his background as a pop drummer with a love for various ethnic music styles. He's particularly happy about the way this came together in the pieces he wrote for the new show Hitmen. His pieces all have 'the groove' as their startingpoint. He also likes to add modern devices like sequencers and samplers to the common set of instruments. Yet his love for the drum will always prevail in his music for Percossa.
