One cannot exist without the other.
Not contrasting notions; rather complementary.
Evolving through each other in a never ending process of interaction.
B&W DRUMS is a percussion band, based in Athens, Greece. Is offering music and performance shows, especially during social events such as weddings, receptions, bachelor & bachelorette parties etc.
It is an original, complete proposal for those looking for something different and impressive for their special day.
The band consists of men and women, always showing up as couples in the events.
Especially for gay weddings, you have the option to choose between the female or male group.
The percussion used is exclusively in black and white: traditional davuls (double-headed drums), snare drums, tambourines, agongos and shakers, tumpelek, mazhar and many more.
All musical instruments are designed in such a way as to allow the musicians to play and move freely at the same time.
Agongo & tambourine
Many different ways of presentation are proposed:
Live percussion accompanied by “background music”, that is, songs selected by the people hosting the event or tailor made songs.
Live percussion without “background music”, that is, dance songs influenced by traditional music styles from Greece, Africa, the Middle East and Brazil, as well as funk, swing etc.
The costumes of B&W DRUMS are in black and white, inspired by the deconstructed image of the bride and groom in a fresh, happy mood and minimalistic aesthetics.
Alternatively, tailor made costumes for theme weddings, receptions, bachelor and bachelorette parties can be proposed by the fashion designer of B&W DRUMS.
Performances prepared by our choreographer allow for black and white to mingle and for the couple to stand out during the ceremony or/and the reception party.
During the event, the B&W DRUMS band is in constant move, taking different shapes and forms, playing percussion and building up the party mood.
Alternatively our choreographer, along with the people hosting the event, can prepare tailor made choreographies for theme weddings, receptions etc.
