Oriol Roca

Real Name:
Oriol Roca
Profile:
Barcelona born drummer Oriol Roca is one of the most prolific musicians of his generation, and a widely demanded musician in the spanish jazz scene. When playing solo Roca expands his set using all kinds of cymbals, different drums, objects, metal bars, plastic bags, stones, toys, bags of sand, a cheap wood flute, kitchen utensils, mini bells, chinese sticks, an original 22″ Paiste gong from 70’s a good friend gave him… anything capable of creating sound is welcome to explore in a free musical form the infinite possibilities of textures, density, dynamics we’re all surrounded by.
At an early age Oriol moved to The Netherlands and started to forge a career with musicians all around Europe. His versatility and the melodic approach he has to the instrument allowed him to build strong bounds with a large number of musicians from the jazz and contemporary scene not only in Spain next to David Mengual, Dani Pérez or Giulia Valle, but with French, Belgian and Italian musicians such as Jeroen van Herzeele, Alexandra Grimal, Paolo Angeli, Joachim Badenhorst, Giovanni di Domenico, Riccardo Luppi, Didier Labbé, Manolo Cabras or Lynn Cassiers.
