ABOUT

Performing percussionist/drummer that has a background in ethnomusicology. As a percussionist I utilize instruments from Peru, Moracco, Egypt & many more with houshold objects such as spatulas, keys, paint rollers and many other found objects. As a drummer, I approach songs from a unique perspective that focuses on melody and excentuate the dynamics of each song. Usually gravitate towards creative, world, acoustic, country, rock, indie, pop and many other genres. Hope we can colanorate together!
