Cote Calmet

Thanks to his family musical influence, he began his musical journey at an early age while growing up in Lima, Peru. His family exposed him to all sorts of styles and genres of music including brazilian, peruvian, salsa, rock, and jazz. This inspired him to start learning guitar and to start playing drums at the age of 15. After only a year of playing, he was accepted to join the the F.D.R School Big Band. By the age of 18, as his music career was just starting to blossom, he was already recording CD’s with local musicians, working as a session drummer with different bands as well as playing live regularly. Calmet's musical personality has always been very wide, he would be considered foremost an improviser but he as well cherishes and has a big fascination for architectural music. He is considered one of the most acclaimed and versatiles drummers in Dublin at the moment as well as being a big force in drums, musical education and composition.
