Drums United
The Netherlands
Percussion Group
Drums United is Lucas van Merwijk's new multicultural world precussion group. In Drums United (D.U.) Lucas is joined by some of the greatest international master drummers. The combination between DJ and Drums is the backbone of the D.U. sound. DJ Ro (OLaBOLA, Paradise Funk, Gotcha!) cuts up his hiphop and jungle grooves over Lucas’s skills and together they make an exciting crossover between traditional percussion and future funk.

Ali N’Diaye Rose, (son of the famous Doudou) and Pape Thiam bring talkingdrum, djembe and sabar to the show, as well as deep Senegal soul. Nils‘Stick on bongo’ Fischer (D) and Gerardo ‘timbalito’ Rosales (Venezuela) are both aces on bongo, chekere, timbales and conga and 16 year old Gianna Tam (SurinAmsterdam), daughter and student of Lucas’ brings fireworks on timbales.

Drums Unites combines fresh sounds from Senegal, Venezuela, Cuba, Braziland Spanish Flamenco. Flamenco dancers 'extra ordinaire' Andres Marín (Spain) and Nuria Manglano bring more to Drums United than a danceshow...it’s an all over body thing.

Combining less known percussion instruments with a DJ Drums United assures a visual as well a soundwise uproar for your mind, body and soul. From intense waterdrums to incredible flamenco feet and beats, together with humorous drumming communication, Drums united is one of a kind.
