On the road

I'll be spending a lot of time on the road with various bands, as well as working on my solo project. I continuously update the dates on the 'TOUR' page, so take a look there and plan when we'll see each other at a gig!



2023 was a year filled with many enjoyable musical encounters through concerts all around Europe. 2024 will continue at a high pace and already includes many booked performances, mainly with the Nils Landgren Funk Unit celebrating its 30th anniversary, which we will commemorate with a new album recorded in Spain in February. The tour schedule will be updated regularly, of course! See you at the concerts!


4/4 at Sthlm Jazz

Absolutely excited to announce my performance on October 18th at the Stockholm Jazz Festival with my solo project "Ikiz 4/4". It promises to be a remarkable evening filled with visuals and brand-new tracks just for you. Let's meet in the heart of Stockholm at the festival – can't wait to see you there!

Annual Restart in CA

Hello 2022! 

Finally I was able to visit Highland, California again to do the "annual restart" where I played a lot of drums prepared the upcoming gigs & recordings and also did some writing. 

Last year in January 2021 I could not travel over the Atlantic Ocean because of the strict rules so I had really missed being here in CA.

Here is a video I just uploaded on my Youtube channel with some different clips when I practiced for the upcoming work in Europe.

First gig after this trip will be in Istanbul on January 28th with Lahza & Kenan Dogulu.

You can find tickets here.

Wish U all a healthy 2022...
