Biography

DRUM DYNASTY:
Happened one day quite by accident. One weekend drummer Bruce Burgess (Seven Against Thebes) recorded hundreds of drum rhythms at a local recording studio just to be used as rhythm exercises for his drum students. Shortly thereafter the recordings caught the attention of local percussionists Arturo Rodriguez and Marco Zonka who began layering percussive elements into the music for their own students. Lastly when Film Composer Kevin Christensen got involved writing background melodies for a few nature folms, Bruce & Co. realized they might be on to something.

THE DEBUT CD:
The debut DRUM DYNASTY CD was officially released in April, 2009 at The 16 Annual World Rhythm Festival in Seattle, Washington. The music caught the attention of local Producer Cyrus Rhodes of KATAVI ARTS Arts who was strolling around the grounds that day in search of fresh new talent. "I was looking for something that was fresh and new sounding, well I found it. The music of Drum Dynasty caught my attention right away as something unique and special. The music itself combines a unique blend of New Age Ambience with Intense World Rhythms. The format of this double CD takes the listener on a musical journey around the world, but what makes it so amazing, is all the different places the music will take you spiritually." The debut CD set is divided into 2 separate CD's (MYSTIC SUNRISE - Disk I) and (DARK CONTINENT - Disk II) Each CD represents a different musical journey. This 2 CD set provides over 90 minutes of musical enjoyment. DRUM DYNASTY is a must gem for any listener out there that wants music to fill a sonic space. It offers a huge variety of music, from intense tribal rhythms to peaceful New Age Tranquility.

DRUM LANGUAGE CONCEPT:
Bruce explains: "Drumming by nature is a very primal expression, and it’s a language mankind has been speaking for centuries. It’s has a universal meaning everyone can relate to, and it exists in almost every form of music. It’s therapeutic for me to study the roots of this truly amazing musical instrument wth the DRUM DYNASTY.
