Drummers Inc. is a weekly series, giving our favourite drummers a platform to showcase their favourite rhythms.
This week, we are joined by Gabriele Poso.
Poso released his first solo album entitled “From The Genuine World”, produced for the American label, Yoruba Records. With this release, he began performing live and spreading his musical vision around Europe and the world.
In June 2012, he released his second solo album called “Roots Of Soul” with the German Label INFRACom!. The project boasts the participation of several influential international featured artists, including Osunlade and Nailah Porter, and has been highly appreciated by international music critics. It has received many positive reviews, and has earned several awards, including Best Jazz Independent Production 2012.
After a period spent in Berlin, Poso has recently completed his third solo album entitled “Invocation”, a work entirely produced, composed, performed, arranged, and sung by the artist himself. In this album, he completely and profoundly expresses his musical vision, allowing him to create without any borders, expectations, or fears. Invocation is a deep and ancestral journey, a secret door to discover the hidden side of yourself.
The album produced by the German label Agogo Records and distributed worldwide by !K7 in April 2014 gained support from the likes of Gilles Peterson and other syndicated international shows. With his organic sound and contemporary electronic language, Gabriele Poso keeps winning over audiences with each and every performance around the globe.
