Carola Grey

Born in Munich, Germany Carola started out as a very motivated classical pianist at the age of 6. When she discovered the drums at 14 it put an abrupt end to those career plans and she decided to study Jazz at the "Musikhochschule" in Cologne where she received her masters degree in music and music education. The next 6 years she spent in New York, where, besides working with numerous artists from all kind of musical directions, she also right away started her own band and began touring.
In the next couple of years this should lead her all over the globe. Her CDs made it into the Top Ten of the U.S. Gavin Jazzcharts and she received several awards as a drummer and composer.

After an invitation to work with master musician T.V.Gopalkrishnan in India in 1997 she developed a strong interest in Indian music. This resulted in collaboration with musicians like singer Ravi Prasad from Paris and, together with adventures in modern club music like 'drum and bass', has had a big impact on the sound and the rhythmic of her band. It also inspired her to develop her unique rhythmical concept which is based on the fusion between her western background and her encounter with the rich Indian system. This concept was first released as a workshop series in the music magazine "Soundcheck" and is now available as a book by 'Voggenreiter' Publishing's.
