The World Rhythm Project was founded in the year 2002 by multi percussionist Sascha Gotowtschikow and fellow musician and ethnomusicologist András Varsányi as a means of bringing together the different drumming traditions from around the world.
Strongly influenced by asian drumming styles the ensemble utilizes in it´s recent program "Asian Drum Beatz" more than thirty exotic, partially unknown percussion instruments from asian and african countries like India, Bali, Java, Japan, Uganda and combines them in their traditional playing styles into a new exciting mixture of global drum beatz.
