For Maverick Mixtapes, we asked musicians from different musical backgrounds to curate an hour of music that they deemed best fit the ideal of an "American Maverick." Today's featured group is the Brooklyn-based new-music ensemble So Percussion.

"It was fun to reflect on what we thought embodied the “maverick” spirit.  In the end, it’s not so much a willingness to thumb your nose at convention – which in itself is easy to do – but to truly strike out on your own and see what’s on the other side of an unorthodox idea.  Each of these musicians did that in a way that has impacted us – both personally and as an artistic entity.  Enjoy!" - So Percussion's Adam Sliwinski
