Over the last 25 years, she has performed at close to a thousand live gigs, and on several hundred films and advertisement jingles.

Aron Nyiro decided to pursue the music profession during high school. After he finished BA studies in jazz drums, he was freelancing and playing with the very best of the Hungarian pop and jazz scene where his unique touch for Latin music became obvious. He graduated in 2014 and started establishing a professional practice by taking gigs, tours, studio work all around Europe. From January of 2016, Aron is the HOD of the drum department of the brand new True School of Music in Mumbai, India.

Originally from Sudan & Egypt, grown up in the UK and now living in Mumbai, Karim Ellaboudi is one of the most in-demand sessions players in the Indian music circuit. He’s known for his immense energy, his virtuosity and his very engaging rhythmic sensibilities.
