Omri Hason was born in 1962. He took to drumming at the age of ten, starting on the drum kit, and later gravitating to hand-drums: the zarb, the darbuka, and the frame drum. The rich multi-cultural environment of his background nourished his first musical passions. Later, the rhythmic language of India deeply influenced his playing, as have years of study with the Iranian master drummer, Djamchid Chemirani. He has lived since 1986 in Switzerland, teaching music, and recording and performing with various jazz and world music aggregations. Omri founded the groups „Kedem Ensemble" and „Modus Quartet“ which feature musicians from several different musical cultures.
