Connecting the world with rhythm

At a young age Bernhard Schimpelsberger immersed himself deeply in the world of Indian classical rhythm. The sounds of the tabla inspired him to combine melody and harmony with his way of playing. Now he travels the world with his Rhythm Diaries project and explores rhythm as a global language between all cultures.
