Finnish National Opera | Drum Battle

Classical meets metal meets hip-hop: drummer Kai Hahto and beatbox YouTuber Rudi Rok team up with Samuli Viitanen, percussionist at the Finnish National Opera. A jam session of the third kind.

 

Epic, dramatic, groove… They are all down to the drummer. Be it the toms, the drum set or even the voice, the musician with the sticks turns movement into dynamics and gives the music a pulse. A single drummer can function as a metronome for an entire orchestra. So what happens when three drummers get together? Kai Hahto (Wintersun, Nightwish), Samuli Viitanen (Finnish National Opera) and beatboxer Rudi Rok live their passion with every fibre of their body. A jam session with these three professionals generates a magical beat mix that works beyond style and genre: voiceless, epic, groove, dramatic.
