How did I start drumming? I've liked playing rhythms since my teens, when i would play around with different objects and surfaces. Later I started inventing 'rhythm kits' (one of those was my famous bucket and pot kit :) I also invented a folding xylophone kind of instrument for my street performances and my travels. I call it Woodpecker's Balafons and that's what i'm working on at the moment. I have intentions to make larger instruments such as a mini marimba or a full 5 octave marimba.
