One of this week’s highlights was the salon at Consul General Gill’s residence featuring German percussionist Christian Benning. Benning, who is already known internationally, offered an extraordinary show in every respect. He indulged our senses in acoustic as well as visional terms showing off his skills on a variety of different instruments. His marvelous talents surprised listeners as he created incredible sounds from ordinary IKEA cans! Named one of the most talented percussionists worldwide, we now definitely know why. His outstanding performance was clearly remarkable and we would be delighted to welcome him again!
