Reza Egloff

Reza Egloff was born in Kermanshah, Iran on August 24, 1990.  At the age of 13 he began studying Tombak—the central drum in traditional Persian music— with different Masters. In 2008 Reza traveled to India and felt drawn to Indian classical music and got inspired to explore and research the world of rhythm from different cultures. Learning different rhythmic patterns significantly influenced his methodology and attitude toward playing Tombak. Reza was back in Iran in 2012 and started giving private Tombak lessons and also attending different Tombak Workshops by other Tombak Masters in Tehran. Alongside, he learned how to play other rhythmical instruments such as Bandir, Cajon, Djembe, Darbuka, and Udu. Reza immigrated to Switzerland in 2017, and shortly after, he met the composer and guitar player Fernando Noriega and he started to play in his band as a multi-percussionist. In 2019 Reza, along with the electronic music composer Oliver Badrzadeh (Qiujan) started a project called Sober Dance Trip. In this project, they bring people to dance to live music played with different types of world drums and percussion, Persian melodic instruments, and electronic sound effects in the background.
