Ilsa Braniff has a keen interest in the relationship between human experience and percussive texture. She works as a creative consultant and plays the Caixa drum in Brazilian samba reggae drumming band Batala Mersey.
“My experience with drumming has resonated through many aspects of my daily life. It has redirected my existing creative passions and presented me with new opportunities and challenges. I hope that by participating in this residency I will be able to meet musicians from a broader range of genres and explore inventive ways to further connect percussion with community.”
