India’s talented Drummer Mukul Dongre on Board with Mapex Drums as MAPEX artiste

Mukul Dongre, a name in the Music Industry that will turn the people crazy with his talent of musical paraphernalia and creating magical and mind blowing sensational music

Mukul is a well oiled percussion machine equally brilliant on the tabla as on drums. As a Percussionist and a Modern Drummer, he is a class of his own, having played with the best and the greatest. Mukul Dongre, son of the well known Indian classical violinist Mr. Madhav Dongre, is one of the rare musicians who have brought the flavor of Indian music through western ways, keeping western grooves rocking.

Mukul Dongre completed his basic drumming under Lester Gaudinho and learnt the intricacies of tabla from maestro Pt. Suresh Talwalkar

Cricketer turned Bodybuilder turned Drummer, is one of the forerunners in the industry, forever pushing the limits and boundaries of music and leading to creative and unconventional drumming. He is capable of subtler, funkier grooves on the one hand and awe-inspiring solo improvisations on the other. In fact his technical virtuosity is such that his flash could sometimes overwhelm his music.

Mukul’s drumming reflects power, technique, dynamics and musicality. He adds his own innovative concepts and strengths, thus creating a percussive punch that’s unique and his alone, yet highly musical and groove-oriented. He can play in a wide variety of musical genres, but is perhaps most notable for his fusion and Latin music playing. He is mostly known for Afro Cuban Latin drumming which is rare in India. He uses all four limbs both individually and as a collective to present multi-timbral sound scapes, adding Konnakol (the art of performing percussion syllables vocally) which is the fifth element in his Independence drumming, defining the drum set as a contemporary solo instrument for the world stage.

He has been endorsed by Furtados for MAPEX DRUMS SATURN SERIES, FALCON pedals, BLACK PANTHER snare drums.

Mapex Drums is a drum band manufactured by KHS Musical Instruments Company of Taiwan. Mapex has been in the drum making Industry for over 18 years.

MAPEX current and past endorsers include Great Drummers like Billy Cobham, Terry Bozzio, Mike Portnoy, Chris Adler, Mike Terrana, Carmine Appice, Gregg Bissonette, Will Calhoun to name a few.

Mr. Anthony Gomes of Furtados says, “We are extremely proud to have one of India’s talented drummer Mukul Dongre on Board with Mapex Drums. Furtados is always known for showcasing and uplifting Musical talent. Mukul, who has a vast experience playing with some legendary musicians, completely deserved to be a MAPEX ARTIST.”

Mapex Drums are the best selling drum kits in India. With a complete range, right from the beginner to professional level, Mapex definitely has something to offer and Suit the requirements.

The workshop highlights on the art of FUSION DRUMMING. Mukul has also performed songs from his world fusion album “AFTER U”. The interactive workshop will highlight some important drum techniques and independence in drumming.

Generally acclaimed as a fusion drummer, Mukul harnessed his amazing dexterity into South & North Indian complexities. Not only does he attack the boundaries of a solo performer but he is credited to have had the honor to have performed with eminent artists as Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasia, Pt. Suresh Talwalkar, Pt. Vishwamohan Bhatt, Trilok Gurtu, Fazal Quereshi, Taufiq Quereshi, Rekha Bhardwaj, Kai Eckhardt, George Brooks, Ronu Majumdar, Niladri Kumar, Aman & Ayan Ali Khan, Rakesh Chaurasia, Abhijit Pohankar & many more top artists from India.

His drumming entices invoke the listener’s curiosity as to what else he’s going to offer. His sensational drumming skills make him an extraordinary stage performer. He is highly disciplined and is always keen to explore new ways of connecting with his audiences

He has toured with world renowned percussionist Trilok Gurtu and guitarist Jeremy Spencer of Fleetwood Mac. His credentials also include performances with accomplished Indian classical artistes. Besides jazz he is comfortable performing both Hindustani and carnatic styles of Indian classical music.

Mukul has performed all over the world, including locations such as London, USA, New Zealand, Malaysia, South Africa, UAE, Singapore and many more.

Seems like Mukul Dongre is on cloud nine with his new endorsement with MAPEX DRUMS.

The movie stars a bunch of young actors with known faces like Ali Zafar and Siddharth along with Divyendu Sharma who is back with his second movie after winning hearts with his performance in Pyaar ka Punchnama, and the tollywood actress Taapsee Pannu who marks her debut in Bollywood with this movie. Chashme Baddoor seems to be all about ‘Dosti aur Pyaar’ and kaminapanti! There are a few scenes in the trailer where you’re sure to burst out laughing, for instance Omi’s hilarious shayri’s and Sid’s helplessness when it comes to choosing between dosti aur pyaar. The trailer is a perfect blend of wacky, slapstick and situational comedy humour with an equally humourous background music supporting it.

David Dhawan has managed to capture this “bromance-kamina” flick with ease and quirkiness in every scene which gives justice to his directorial comeback with a bang! The trailer has been launched today across social properties, the movie promises to be an entertaining one. Airtel kicked off with their “Har Ek Friend Zaroori Hota Hai” campaign, we can already see how fast “Har ek friend kamina hota hai” is going to catch on among fans!
