Slagwerk Den Haag (SDH) is fascinated by everything concerned with sound, pulse and materials that produce sound. SDH performs and co-creates percussion music in the most diverse incarnations imaginable. Playing the repertoire, commissioning new projects, creating new works with composers and partners from other disciplines, and testing the limits and possibilities of ordered sound are all in a day's work for SDH.
