His groove is contagious. His sense of time is innate. And his musicality is undeniable.
Yamaha Drum Artist Mark Colenburg is 100% music. Having played since age 2, the drums are no longer an instrument for Colenburg. They're an extension of his body and a vehicle for artistic expression.
As drummer Mark has had the opportunity to perform with some of today's greats-- Common, Mos Def, Lalah Hathaway, Kenny Garrett, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Lauryn Hill, the list goes on. For the Robert Glasper Experiment, Colenburg has won last year's Grammy for "Best RnB Album" and toured the globe for variety of live perfomrnaces.
Mark Colenburg has made his presence felt amongst a seriously happening group of musicians (Casey Benjamin, Derrick Hodge, and Robert Glasper.) With a rhythmic conception that draws from artists like Philly Joe to J-Dilla, Mark ColenburgÂ´s sound is both historically informed and progressive.

Known as a hybrid bassist as well as a solo artist, Derrick Hodge has performed and recorded with various artists including Common, Q-Tip, Kanye West, Timbaland, Jill Scott, Mos Def, Musiq Soulchild, Floetry, Gerald Levert & The Robert Glasper Experiment.
