INDIA - Karnataka, Bangalore
Montry Manuel Thaalavattam, a percussionist was born and brought up at Cochin, had the love for music since his childhood. He was influenced by his father for all his creative ways of living and love for music. He was trained by his guru Jerry Peter who instilled in him the love of drums. He later learned about the finer nuances of different drumming styles from Jeoraj Stanley. He attributes his flexibility and comfort with different styles (reggae, samba, and Indian folk) to the grounding in basics his teachers gave him. Growing up to rock ‘n roll classics, he played in bands that covered everyone from Pink Floyd to Weather Report. He also worked with a renowned Indian band named “Swarathma” for Eight years. Montry started to ideate in creating music from recycled products. Thus Thaalavattam was formed in 2009. The word Thaalavattam is derived from Malayalam (Local language of Kerala, India). It translates to "A Circle of Rhythm". Soon after this Montry quit Swarathma and started focusing full time on Thaalavattam since 2012.
