Around the three drummers of Drumaturgia top-class international musicians have come together. They go together completely new way, without paying attention to a genre border. East meets West, classical music culture meets heartbeats. Japanese taiko, piano, percussion, loops, drums and bass.
Fusion Jazz fused with hip hop, breakbeat, Latin, Far Eastern sounds and polyrhythms. Japanese drumming combines with modern sounds to a modern musical fireworks.
Each concert the group is like a premiere, at the end of a unique music was created, which was invented spontaneously in interaction. Their high musical communication skills allows the artists to take the audience on a virtuoso and unknown journey through all facets of the music history.
This is world music in the best sense, without tonal embellishments, with the necessary sensitivity and respect for detail.
Far away from mainstream the musicians blur the limits of senses: visual and audible fascination blend seamlessly. Mixed with trance-like rhythms of Japanese drums – with "Grooves & Pianistic Soundscapes" Drumaturgia go far completely untrodden musical paths.
