Jet Kye Chong is a versatile percussionist, delivering award-winning performances and recitals as a soloist, and frequently accompanying choirs, soloists, and ensembles.

In addition to his classical training, he is skilled in a range of instruments and percussion styles from around the world, including aspects of Japanese, Chinese, European, Middle Eastern, North Indian, African, and Latin American musical traditions (including 太鼓 (taiko/taigu), various frame drums and hand drums, traditional tambourines, tabla, djembe, congas and bongos).

Active in the contemporary scene, he features in experimental music recordings and can help you find unique and specific sounds for any performance or project.
