Circle of Rhythm

CIRCLE OF RHYTHM

Heralded as Australia’s most exciting rhythm trio; Greg Sheehan, Bobby Singh and Ben Walsh have between them changed the face of percussion in Australia. After ten years of defining and redefining what Australian drumming can offer the world they have formed a percussion trio with a difference, rich in culture from the various styles all three dynamic performers have spent their lives exploring.

This new group is the result years of collaboration together through many different groups such as, Pablo Percusso, Utungan Percussion, Skin, Dha, The Bird, Taal Vadya to name a few…
Circle of Rhythm exhibits their masterful skill of drumming as an ensemble but also does not shy away from melodic percussion, creating a very varied and accessible listening experience.

From the high energy, fast paced drumming styles of Japan and Polynesia to the ethereal and spiritually uplifting sounds of India, this ensemble boasts a full spectrum of styles and instrumentation that will delight your senses with their unique style and approach. Melodic and rhythmic, you can count on all things percussed with mastery as each member has dedicated their life to the study of the drum.

Their show is homage to multi-cultural Australia, borrowing rhythms and melding a collection of drum styles together in a truly masterful way that is both unique, and rich, in ancient tradition. Expect a power house of razor-sharp, precision beats and drumming of the highest order delivered in a sometimes humorous and relaxed Australian approach.

The Circle of Rhythm is a relatively new ensemble, with a fresh outlook, but collectively the members have accrued over 30 years of touring experience world wide. Each individual has forged a different name and musical identity in their own right.
Australia has produced a new force in world-percussion music that can do none other than present a fresh approach to the experience of the music of the drum.

They will make you laugh, share their stories and most definitely leave you breathless… expect nothing less than standing ovations.
