The stream makes the World Drum Festival accessible to all interested drummers and percussionists", says Prof. Udo Dahmen, artistic director and managing director of the Popakademie Baden-Württemberg.

Internationally renowned drummers and percussionists such as Rhani Krija (Sting), Anika Nilles (Clinician) and Benny Greb (Clinician) will demonstrate in master classes and concerts what is currently the state of the art in the worldwide drum and percussion scene.

Among others, they will be joined by Anika Nilles (dr.), Benny Greb (dr.), Rhani Krija (perc.), Rossi Rossberg (drum tuning), Chris Bass (electronic drums), Pape Seck (african perc.) and Murat Coskun (framedrums).
