Album Notes
Hi i'm Fabrizio Bigioni born in Rome in 1966. i'm teacher of Drums and Percussion since 20 years. Of course i like a lot rhithmic music and above all i love ethnic music and world music where you can find lots of different cultures and what you get is a lot of ideas,and different situations mixed together.I started playing drums in 1981 i went to school of drums and i took part of several stages in Rome,London,L'Habana,Umbria jazz and of course i'm still studying.From 1990 i'm teaching Drums and Percussions in Anguillara School of Music near Rome,i play concerts in all over Italy with various bands.
When i started playing drums my idols were Led Zeppelin,Deep Purple,Pink Floyd,Pat Metheny,Billy Cobham,Genesis,Yes,Police,Pino Daniele,PFM,Banco,Area,Bob Marley,King Krimson,Wheather Report,Miles Davis,Steve Gadd,Peter Erskine,and then Abbilona,DouDouN'DiayeRose,Fela Kuti,Youssou N'Dour,Manu Dibango,Horacio Hernandez,Giovanni Hidalgo ecc ecc;so maximum respect to them and to other bands that i didn't mentioned..They gave me the stimulus to never stop study,play, and experiment .
Actually in the middle of 90's i started the study of Ethnic Percussions.i studied the African ones with Kassi De Guessabo from Ivory Coast,then Arabic darbuka with Abdullah from Egypt and up to now Afrocuban ones with Humberto la Pellicula from Cuba L'Habana.Out of curiosity i started recording some songs playing only percussions and the result was this actual cd by Ritmiko called Etno where i played lots of ethnical instruments and recorded,arranged and mixed at Big1 Studio in Anguillara (Rm).
