Adam Pawel is a Polish-born percussionist with Slavic roots who plays organic rhythms with an exotic blend of non-classical concepts. The adventure with music began in the mid-90s, it was the start of discovering different kinds of drums and sounds of distant cultures in the world. His inspirations are funk, jazz, disco, rock, neo-soul, trip-hop, world music, and from traditional to electronic melodies. The heart of Adam’s activities is sharing and inspiring each other.

The greatest inspiration comes from the people he met in his life. These moments and events took root deep in Adam’s heart, left many memories with strong feelings.

Music is an emotional and spiritual journey in our lives. It’s a kind of transcendence, a divine balm for the soul. This is an incredible pulse of the world!
