Manni von Bohr & P.U.L.S.E in Tehran -June 2016
Manni von Bohr, one the most influential drummers worldwide, was my second guest in June 2016. It was a dream for me to host my childhood drum hero from Germany in Tehran.
We met already at the Musik Messe Frankfurt in April 2016 and in June he was invited by me to do a 12 hour “Drum Tuning Seminar” and a” Drum Micing/Recording Master class”.
Over 20 attendants from all over Iran came to visit this drum-educational event in the heart of the city.
After three days of learning, Manni and Hakim Ludin played there worldwide drum&percussion duo “P.U.L.S.E” for all attendants in Percussion and Drum Workshop.
Therefor we arranged a giant drum kit of “Mapex Saturn V” with two Bass Drums, on which Manni has played his “Quad Pedal” Technique with his two DW 9000 Twin Pedals.
After his Seminar and Concert, Manni stayed 3 more days in Tehran to get to know more about country and people in Iran. It is nice to see that my lovely country is so interesting that each time my guest lecturers came to do a Workshop; they want to stay more days to visit the city, even though they are busy and have more events to do around the world.
Thanks to my team at Iranian Drummer for doing such a great job. You are the best……
Thanks to Sorna for supporting me for this kind of educational events.
…and of course thank you Manni von Bohr, you are still my big drum hero….
