African drums, Dance, Hip Hop, Indian tabla’s, Cuban rumba’s and much more. It all comes together in Drums United’s thrilling new show Heartbeat. Drums United is an explosive and exciting world-percussion group led by drummer Lucas van Merwijk, that brings together rhythms and percussionists from all directions. Drums United is made up of 8 percussionists, from seven different countries, Bangladesh, Senegal, Germany, the Netherlands, Surinam and Venezuela, and is much more than just a drum group.

It’s a smoking live band that not only gives the audience an opportunity of listening and watching top players, but also imparts the underlying message that people from widely varying nationalities can work well together. On both its previous show World of Rhythm and the current Ritmo Inferno the group mixes African, Latin, Spanish and Indian drum traditions with western drumming, utilizing contemporary electronic options open to the DJ.
