I am a London (UK) based drummer/percussionist exclusively endorsing Liberty Drums and Tycoon Percussion. What I love about drums is the challenge of combining the animal and the intellectual aspects of it. I love the physicality of playing-the sweating and the pounding of the drums but I’m also drawn to the intellectual side of exploring rhythm in a complex manner.
My fascination with rhythm and culture shaped my musical education as I journeyed through the roots of jazz, latin, rock and African music. To broaden my cultural depth and musical knowledge, I studied Western Classical Music at the Conservatoire de Musique de Tournai (Belgium). Most recently I graduated from Bhavan Institute of Indian Music and Art (UK) with a diplomma in carnatic rhythm/Indian classical music (instrument: mridangam) under the guidance of the mridangam maestro, sri M Balachandar. I love the challenge of translating carnatic rhythm into a western instrument!
