“Zapion was founded by Eric LaPerna, a percussionist who specializes in Middle Eastern drumming (he is the director of Bowdoin College’s Middle Eastern Music Ensemble)…The music uses modal scales… that are unlike the Western diatonic scale and have an entirely different emotional character….” — Allan Fozinn, Portland Press Herald
