Tamburello Total 3

Advanced techniques, grooves and concepts for the modern Tamburello


Tamburello is an extraordinary instrument, a real miniature drum-set capable of supporting an entire concert by itself thanks to its incredible variety of sounds and dynamics.
The Tamburello began to enjoy a great popularity outside of Italy thanks to Andrea's work of expanding techniques and expressive possibilities, finding application for the first time in jazz contexts (Bobby Mc Ferrin, Paul Mc Candless, Basel Rajoub), world (Homayun Sakhi, Wu Man, Donál Lúnny), and ancient music (Les Haultz et Les Bas).

This course is the core of Andrea's recent work in developing new techniques, possibilities, grooves and concepts. The course is recommended only to advanced or well experienced players, let's take your playing to the next level!

All the material contained in this course is original, specifically conceived and never published before.

He is touring worldwide with artists such as Bobby McFerrin, Paul McCandless, Gianluigi Trovesi, Basel Rajoub, Luciano Biondini, Manfred Leuchter, Lucilla Galeazzi, Les Haulz et les Bas, Caitrìona O’Leary, Donàl Lunny and Wu Man. In parallel he’s a popular teacher at major festivals, universities and conservatories around the world as well.
