Pearl Drum Video Project
Pearl, the world’s largest manufacturer of drums & percussion, asked drummers all around the world to send in videos of themselves playing 4 bars at 108 beats per minute. We received a large amount of videos of every variety of drummer and from places including Italy, Japan, Poland, Australia, Germany, Canada, Finland, and the US.
Featured artists in Wave One.5 are Omar Hakim, Yonrico Scott, Rosa Avila, Anders Meinhardt, and many others. Artists included in Wave One were Todd Sucherman, Scott Johnson, Blue-Hawks Drumline, Grant Collins, Simon Scheibel, and Peter Szendofi.
Those videos are Pearl’s way of showing that although borders, language, and ideology may separate us, music will always be our common denominator.
If you didn’t appear in Wave One or Wave One.5, you may be included in future installments.
