Kroumata has a strong commitment to contemporary percussion music and has commissioned numerous works from Swedish and international composers. The group's extensive repertoire includes works by composers as diverse as Sofia Gubaidulina, John Cage, Iannis Xenakis, Hanna Hartman, André Chini, Steve Reich, Toru Takemitsu, and Sven David Sandström. Over the years, Kroumata has premiered more than 220 works and has toured extensively to dozens of countries around the world.
