Drums United is made up of 8
percussionists, from seven different
countries, Bangladesh, Senegal, Germany,
the Netherlands, Surinam and Venezuela,
and is much more than just a drum group.
It’s a smoking live band that not only gives
the audience an opportunity of listening and
watching top players, but
also imparts the underlying
message that people from
widely varying nationalities
can work well together.
On both their previous show,
World of Rhythm and the
current Ritmo Inferno the
group mixes african, latin,
spanish and indian drum
traditions with western
drumming, utilizing
contemporary electronic
options open to the DJ.
Since its inception in 2002
the band has been virtually
on tour all the time. Their
first theatre program World
Of Rhythm was recorded live
and is out on DVD as well as CD.
Drums United occupies a unique place in the world of percussion groups by
combining elements of the rich traditions of percussion with those of song and dance
