TAMA Drums welcomes Anika Nilles to its Artist Roster. Nilles has developed an online following from her impressive catalog of drumming videos, and has performed at drum clinics and festivals around the world.

Her music can be classified as a progressive pop, but the most important element in her music is always “the groove.” Nilles has just released her debut album, Pikalar, on which she collaborated with her longtime producer, Joachim Schneiss.

Nilles is a regular contributor to Drum magazine as an author of Practice Pad Lessons. Her rapidly growing profile in the drum community earned her a spot as the #1 “Rising Star” in Drum Magazine’s 2015 and 2016 Drummies Awards. She also won Modern Drummer‘s Readers Poll in the category “Up and Coming Drummer.”
