Mariya Tikhonov

I am a Russian drummer from Saint-Petersburg living and working in France, Bordeaux.
I like to take the music without the drums part and compose a drum part that questions a lot with vocals or other instruments.
I play in most styles of current music and always with a smile 🙂

My drum set is:
PDP 18' Concept Maple
Zildjian New Beat hi-hat 14', Projection A Avedis crash 17', A Avedis ride 20', and a little stuck with old brocken zildjian cymbals.
Yamaha Steel old school snare drum 14'x 5,5'

    That was excellent. You are a solid drummer who plays with confidence and authority. Your time is outstanding as is your groove. Good luck in HLAG!

    Excellent timing, love the grooves, the solid push-pull hi-hat technique and the confidence/joy with which you play!

    thank you for noting grooves, because I thought for a long time to compose them, I wanted it to emphasize the music, because in the original music there are no drums or beats at all.
    Thank you so much! and Good Luck!!!
