The Colorado State University-Pueblo Percussion Ensemble and Drumline will be holding their semester Percussion Extravaganza Concert on April 18 in the Hoag Hall at 7:30 p.m.

The Percussion Extravaganza Concert will be a free one-night performance that features music from regions such as West Africa, Bali, Jamaica and the United States, according to an email from Eddie Dowdle, director of the Drumline.

The Percussion Ensemble songs will be played on instruments such as steel drums, tenor drums, bass drums, snare drums, African drums, keyboard percussion instruments and hand percussion, Dowdle said.

The CSU-Pueblo Drumline will perform pieces that spotlight the different sections of the Drumline: bass drums, snare drums and tenor drums. The last performance will be a full Drumline cadence, according to Dowdle.

The Drumline will be performing four songs; “My Independence,” “Low Five”, “Stool Pigeon” and “Rocket,” according to the Percussion Extravaganza Concert’s program.

The Percussion Ensemble will be performing six songs: “Fanga,” “No Woman No Cry,” “Conga,” “Gending Bali,” “Edge of the World” and “Mas Fuerte,” according to the program.
