I am Eshan Khadaroo. I drum, write, produce, teach and coach – all from (near) Aachen, Germany. I have had the exquisite luck, privilege and honor of working with some of my biggest heroes such as Cirque Du Soleil, Blue Man Group, Imogen Heap, Incognito and many more. Up until 2010 I spent most of my drumming career either on the road or in the studio, traveling all over the world and meeting loads of lovely – and not so lovely – people along the way.

Whilst touring in North America with Cirque Du Soleils “Kooza” I was diagnosed with terminal kidney failure and had to abruptly leave the tour to go back home and start immediate dialysis treatments to keep me alive. After almost two years of that and a lot of time to consider what I was going to do with the second chance I had been given to hang around on this rock flying through space and time, I was blessed with two major life events – this time time totally positive: Number one was that I received a kidney transplant from none other than my own mother (doesn’t get much better than that) and number two was the birth of my first child.

I always believed 2012 was the year things were going to end on this planet, but now I have been proven otherwise… at least for me this is the year of new beginnings. It has always been an important thing for me to pass on the flame to the next generation and to anyone else that is interested. I have been writing a book for over a decade now and have decided that it is time to get it out there. Without any kind of external pressure though, it can be hard to find a reason to keep working on a project this big – so I decided to start this new website as a means of sharing the ideas with you as I work on them in the form of blog posts and in the process, fine tuning the ideas enough to put them into various course formats…

That’s just one part though…. Now that this site is here, I plan on using it as an outlet for a variety of things I have wanted to share with ALL my brother & sister musicians and music lovers out there on our hyper-connected globe ,we are all presently hurtling through space on… I hope you enjoy it and if you do, please be so kind and support this work by sharing it with others!
