How to use percussion in a sentence?

  1. Damon Albarn:

    It's a truly miraculous sound they create ... There's a whole choir, there's strings, there's soloists, there's amazing percussion.

  2. Paul Templer:

    Typically, if a hippo is going to be attacking, you’ll see it coming way before. There will be that bow wave. … If you slap the water, the percussion 99.9 times out of 100 will turn the hippo, if you’re in a canoe and a hippo knocks you in the water, get away from the canoe.
