Bernhard Schimpelsberger

Bernhard Schimpelsberger (aka Taalis) plays the percussion like a tabla virtuoso. A unique drummer & percussionist in his own rights he seemlessly blends western groove drumming and complex Indian rhythms in his innovative drumming style.

Having studied Indian rhythm with Tablamaster Pandit Suresh Talwalkar in India and Percussion legend Trilok Gurtu, Bernhard plays a customized hybrid percussion setup which enables him to push the boundaries between tradition and progress.

Bernhard maintains a busy touring and recording schedule. The list of his collaborators includes the pioneers of todays music industry. He has recorded and toured with Nitin Sawhney,Talvin Singh, Susheela Raman, Akram Khan, Niladri Kumar and many more.

Steckbrief

Professional Activities

Cajon, Percussionist & Drummer

Why Schlagwerk?

The first Cajon that I ever had was a Cajon La Perù from Schlagwerk. I have many good memories of it. Schlagwerk is also very innovative when it comes to experimenting with new sounds. I like that as it suits my approach. What more to say? They are wonderful instruments and I love them.

Favourite Instrument?

My favourite Cajon is the Cajon Fineline Comfort Morado and I take it with me on tour. I also love all the small add ons such as the heck stick with its jingles....
