About

Drummer, bandleader, and educator Benedikt Hesse is based in Cologne, Germany.

Early in his career, he made a musical pilgrimage to New York and New Orleans to study American styles at their source with some of their greatest masters including Johnny Vidacovich and Adam Deitch. His career now reflects the investment he made to delve into each of his many musical interests, having toured internationally with the musical Dirty Dancing, Roamin’ Jasmine, and Terrence Ngassa.

Benedikt remains firmly rooted in his hometown of Cologne, maintaining a decade-plus tenure with the acclaimed Haenneschen Theatre, running his own drumming school, and cultivating original projects like Cubanola and the organ trio Hesse/Koerner/Petrov.

Studio Recording

portrait-105.jpg

AREA 51 is my studio in Cologne, Germany, where I track drums for artists and producers. Budgets are often smaller, studios are closing and due to geography and time restrictions it’s not always possible to record drums the way you’d like. Here I’m able to offer flexibility to producers and the opportunity to have live drums on tracks which in the past would have been programmed or looped.
