Alexander Jenkins

Band: Independent/Educator

"I’ve been playing Aquarian drumheads for more than 15 years. They are the most consistent and musical drumheads I’ve ever played."


Due to his in-depth study of the music of different cultures, Alex’s playing transcends musical traditions and boundaries. His expression of rhythm is heavily influenced by his study of Tabla. As a result, Alex has become known for his creative approach to music and his unique ability to fuse rhythmic ideas from various disciplines, into one cohesive sound.

Alex has studied and performed all over the world (India, Bali and the Dominican Republic) just to name a few.

Alex performs and records regularly, around California and beyond, playing a variety of music (on both Drum set and Tabla) including, Jazz, Rock, Blues, Fusion, Indian Classical and just about everything in between.
