About Jose

Drum kit
London
Professional musician, with more than 15 years of experience playing different styles, touring, studying and performing.

I am a professional musician with more than 15 years of experience, accustomed to playing different styles (Jazz, Be-bop, Rock, Pop, Reggae, R & B, Latin, Samba, Hip-Hop, Flamenco, African Grooves, etc ...). I have traveled, studied, taught and acted in different countries, always trying to expand my knowledge and experiences to translate them later into music. I have a superior technique as a jazz musician and I have studied with great drum masters such as Daniel "Pipi" Piazzolla, Carlos Carli, Marcelo Blanco, Alberto Cabello and musicians like Carlos Lastra and Osvaldo Burucúa. I have also recorded studio albums, and was touring across european countries and participated in numerous musical projects.

From customers:

La V, 7 years ago

Beautiful compositions and guitar and percussion developments without pause or border’. (‘Hermosas composiciones y desarrollos guitarrísticos y de percusión sin pausa ni frontera’). Viva, tiempo para la cosecha. Foehn records, 2012

Joe T, 7 years ago

‘ There is a natural grace to these compositions that’s difficult to deny. Foster & Herrero’s Band continued efforts to mine Spain’s rich musical heritage and to make its treasures accesible to a broader audience’. “Perlas” Josephine Foster and the Victor Herrero Band. Fire records, 2012
