The full cooperation and enthousiasm of the master Alexandre Babel of Eklekto, Geneva Percussion Center, made it a highly succesful event.
Highlight turned out to be the performance with a spectacular act of Han Bennink, where the students of the Conservatorium van Amsterdam could participate in full.
