Pete Lockett/World Drummer's Ensemble Biography

ONE - Pete Lockett is one of the world's leading multi-percussionists. An authority on Indian percussion and an expert on tablas, kanjira, and bongos, he has played and recorded with countless artists including Björk, Peter Gabriel, Robert Plant, Jeff Beck, David Torn, Vikku Vinayakram, Selva Ganesh, Ustad Zakir Hussain, The Verve, Steve Smith, Nitin Sawhney,  Afro Celt Sound System, the BBC Concert Orchestra, and David Arnold for the James Bondmovies. He is one of the few UK musicians to be honoured with invitations to play in India in the highest circles of Indian classical musicians. Back in 1999 before he was well-known, Lockett toured with Bruford as Network of Sparks and they produced an inventive, culture-busting album called 'One.'  The group was a percussion quintet covering many of the disciplines from around the world, in which the Ghanaian and North Indian Dhol traditions rubbed shoulders with progressive jazz and electronics. The music on One is an authoritative guide to the glorious colours available from more sophisticated rhythmic cultures than our own western one, and several of its ideas were carried on into the recent World Drummers Ensemble Summerfold dual-disc with percussionists Bruford, Chad Wackerman, Luis Conte and Doudou N'Diaye Rose.
