Lale Nenadovic Trio

My goal was always to become a performer devoted more to music, than to his instrument, and I believe that this characteristic, more than any other, is accurately expressed within my style of playing and approaching the drums.
A percussionist who slips effortlessly among musical styles while retaining his own distinct sound.
The percussive technical lexicon I have developed and mastered, as well as the capability to immerse myself into various, and extreme musical styles, have been inspired, and pushed to the limits by my peers, master jazz musicians from NYC, during numerous live and recording sessions in the late 80's and throughout the 90's
