Anders Kann Elten, marimba and percussion

Anders Elten is a student of classical percussion at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen, Denmark.


Playing the marimba is my great passion. Active as a solo artist but also as a chamber musician, I have performed in various European countries and also toured China with the group Percurama.

In 2012 I formed the  ‘Phantom Duo’ together with Polish percussionist Tomasz Szczepaniak, and together we have performed extensively in Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Poland. In the spring of 2016, he will tour the U.S. with the World Percussion Group as a soloist and ensemble member.
