"one of the most technically gifted and tasteful players we have seen in a long time" Drummer Magazine UKBritish-Austrian musician Bernhard Schimpelsberger plays the percussion, composes genre defying music or travels the world collecting new sounds. Bernhard grew up in Austria deeply rooted in Jazz and Western classical music, but it was his dedicated years of studies in India that shaped his unique approach to rhythm and music. Under tutelage of Pandit Suresh Talwalkar, one of the legendary Tabla masters of our time Bernhard emerged himself in the Indian rhythmic system and incorporated its poetry and intricacy into his western music making. For Bernhard music is a language of communication and is a passionate collaborator across all styles. He has all toured around the globe performing with his group Circle of Sound, Anoushka Shankar, Nitin Sawhney, Akram Khan, Talvin Singh, Susheel Raman and others. Many of his compositions are based on his unique collection of percussion instruments. Bernhard also showcases this in his percussion solo concerts titled Rhythm Diaries. He is a singular phenomenon in the world of percussion today. His musical outlook combines dazzling virtuosic technique with musical risk taking and exquisite eclectic taste.
