Artistic Director

Percussionists often take a backseat to other musicians, even though their sound and rhythmic sophistication are what it takes to make the music flow, accentuate the sound and get listeners into the groove. Because of the background role often played by percussionists at drum festivals, José came up with the idea of developing two festival concepts, which center around percussionists only.

World Percussion Academy

In cooperation with the LANDESMUSIKAKADEMIE NRW, the first World Percussion Academy took place in 2012 with great success. The goal of the World Percussion Academy is to offer an intensive working atmosphere in which percussionists can delve into the secrets of Oriental, African, Mediterranean, Brazilian, Indian and Latin American percussion.

- FROM PERU TO FLAMENCO TO POP -
The Cajon stands for four days at the center of the first Cajon-Academy, which also takes place in cooperation with the LANDESMUSIKAKADEMIE NRW every second year, alternating with the World Percussion Academy. Stylistic methods of Flamenco, Peruvian Cajon and popular music are studied, as well as the use of Add-ons.
