Oriol didn’t always know he wanted to be a musician, let alone a percussion player. There was always music at home, though. He remembers listening to classical music recordings with his grandfather at a very early age and playing Beatles tunes on a beat up guitar along with his father and brother when he was in primary school. Drums came later. So did improvised music. He learned the drumming rudiments through a friend, then found himself studying with committed and experienced teachers such as his mentor, German drummer Jo Krause, who encouraged him to move to The Netherlands to study at The Royal Conservatoire in The Hague
