Award-winning percussionist, Pete Lockett presents an incredibly dynamic, entertaining and informative showcase of drumming and percussion from every part of the globe. The exploration of world rhythms is complemented by subtle sound design and electronics.  The combination of sound textures, powerful pulsing grooves and virtuosic solos has captivated and entertained audiences worldwide and reflects Pete’s work with artists such as Peter Gabriel, Björk, Jeff Beck, Robert Plant, Kodo, Zakir Hussain and also on five of the 007 Bond movies.
