COSA PENSIAMO DI LUI

Uno dei batteristi più  prestigiosi tra gli amici di Respighi Drums è Israel Varela, il musicista nativo di Tijuana, in Messico, e poi stabilitosi a Roma, da dove è attivo muovendosi in Europa e nel mondo per collaborare con i più grandi musicisti della scena jazz. 

Dopo un lungo corteggiamento anche lui è finalmente parte della squadra di Respighi Drums dal 2019. Fonte ti ispirazione unica, ci ha permesso di creare quello che umilmente crediamo essere uno dei set più belli e impegnativi usciti dal nostro laboratorio.
