Jonathan Ovalle

A committed performer of contemporary art music as well as an inspired jazz/world percussionist and drummer, Jonathan Ovalle is equally comfortable in the concert hall, on the jazz stage, or freely improvising in a public space. He has performed and presented masterclasses in North America, Europe, and Asia, has been a featured artist at the Percussive Arts Society International Convention, and has recently been a featured clinician at the Ohio, Tennessee, Ontario, and Quebec PAS Days of Percussion. He is currently one half of the chamber duo, PERCUNOVA, along with percussionist Neeraj Mehta. The duo gave its international concert debut in July 2014 at the Thailand Brass and Percussion Conference in Bangkok, Thailand, followed by a concert/clinic tour of India. The duo's current work is focused on concertizing and developing a body of new repertoire, which stands at the nexus of contemporary chamber percussion music and Afro-Cuban percussion traditions. He is currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan School of Music, Theater & Dance and is a proud artist/endorser with Pearl/Adams, Zildjian, Remo, and Innovative Percussion. His compositions are published exclusively by Tapspace Publications.
