Marton Maderspach started his musical career at an early age as a violinist. He found himself interested in percussion when he met his first drum teacher, Eduardo Pipman. Learning jazz and groove feel, his classical background brought him to finish a BAC in percussions at University of Montreal with Julien Grégoire. Over the last 10 years, he has traveled around the world with Cirque Éloize’s Show NEBBIA where he performed various percussion and string instruments. He has also performed all around Canada and in Europe with many groups as a multi-perfomer. Marton is also mostly known as a drummer in ensembles like Sagapool, Les Gitans de Sarajevo, BRIGA. We can hear Marton on more than a dozen Quebec artists albums.
Bruno Roy was exposed to music at a very early age as his father was an opera singer and his mother played piano. Bruno began playing the drums when he was eleven years old. Over the years, Bruno studied with a number of musicians including Camille Belisle at the Université de Montréal, and privately with Peter Magadini and Michel Dupire (snare drum and Brazilian percussion). A versatile musician, Bruno plays many different musical styles on the drums and percussion, performing with several artists and bands, including Rhythm Club, Power Play, Simcha Orchestra (klezmer), Dawn Tyler Blues Project, and more. He often accompanies many of these artists at the Montreal International Jazz Festival, and has recorded with some of them. His love of music and teaching led Bruno to work for Jeunesses Musicales of Canada, where he annually appears in hundreds of concerts, workshops, and drum circles in schools and venues throughout Canada. He also leads intensive drum circle sessions at the Lanaudière Music Camp.
