Arjun Bruggeman

Arjun Bruggeman, world percussionist and session recording artist, is highly acclaimed for his unique hybrid of East-meets- West rhythms.

At the age of 14, Arjun embarked on a touring career with punk rock bands. His interest in early progressive, metal and jazz rhythms led him into a creative journey and later found himself enthralled by world percussion.

Arjun recalls, “I wanted to go deeper. I wanted to support something that was bigger than me something more than music.” This profound experience led Arjun to meet Krishna Das and a connection with Neem Karoli Baba.
