More than 50 musicians and 10 people from the technical team gathered last Sunday (29/08), in São Paulo, at Tom Brasil, to celebrate the Brazilian drums.

The 1st Aquiles Priester Drum Festival was a dream for the Brazilian drums: responsible for all this was the incomparable Aquiles Priester. Aquiles Polvo Priester brought together drummers from Rock, Metal, Forró, Pop, Sertanejo, among many other styles, in an unprecedented mix! Renowned musicians played on Aquiles’ drums and on the stage of Tom Brasil, in São Paulo, one of the most renowned venues in Latin America.

Have you ever imagined watching Eloy Casagrande performing Black Sabbath’s “N.I.B”? Sergio Melo playing Rush’s “Animate”? And Dino Verdade playing “Fuel” by Metallica? Ivan Busic from Dr.Sin featuring “Tom Sawyer”, also from Rush? Surreal, isn’t it?! All of this was presented by Aquiles Priester in this unique and special event for the drums.

All drummers of different styles said they were admired for a Heavy Metal drummer for creating one of the most important events in the history of Brazilian drums. The most said phrase of the night by them was: “this was a challenge!”. Everyone who played on Achilles’ drums left there ecstatic by the experience and saying that it was something unique to play in someone else’s drum configuration, especially Achilles’ drums, because his drums look like Disneyland.

Among the drummers invited to the festival are Albino Infantozzi, Andre Jung, Cássio Cunha, Carlos Bala, Christiano Galvão, Cláudio Infante, Cuca Teixeira, Dino Verdade, Douglas Las Casas, Duda Neves, Eloy Casagrande, Giba Favery, Gilson Naspolini, Ivan Busic, Juba Blitz, Luana Dametto, Lufeh Batera, Mauricio Leite, Max Kolesne, Paulo Zinner, Ricardo Confessori, Riquelme, Sérgio Melo and Vera Figueiredo.

The musicians who were in the support bands are also renowned as Edu Falaschi, Thiago Bianchi, Vanessa Lockhart, Angel Sberse, João Luiz, Fabricio Fonseca, Theo Vieira, Roberto Barros, Diogo Mafra, Cristiano Wortmann, Jessica di Falchi, Michel Leme, PJ (Jota Quest), among many others.

TVMaldita, Aquiles Priester’s YouTube channel, covered the event and will soon release a beautiful making of the festival.
