We are very excited to welcome the amazing Anika Nilles to the TAMA family!! Check out her debut video on TAMA drums below!
Anika is a drummer and songwriter based in Germany.
Her music can be classified as a progressive pop, but the most important element in her music is always "the groove"! Anika's playing style is distinguished by her finesse in technique and her unique sound.
This was well received with her world tour in 2015 as she travelled trough Europe, USA and China to share her music with the world. Well known in the drum community, Anika won the Modern Drummer Readers Poll for Up and Coming Artist, as well as #1 Rising Star in DRUM! Magazine's DRUMMIES Awards in 2015 and 2016.During the same year, Anika and her trusted producer Joachim Schneiss put a lot of passion into producing her debut album called PIKALAR. The fruit of this journey is a 10 track instrumental album. Together with Anika on drums PIKALAR also features the talents of many great musicians, each bringing and adding a unique flavour to the album. Anika has brought a handful of these musicians together to form her band Nevell, which can be seen performing her music live on stage with her.
In 2017 Meinl Cymbals released a signature Cymbal, the 18 Deep Hat in collaboration with Anika. Besides that she's endorsing Meinl Cymbals, Vic Firth Sticks, Evans Drumheads, TAMA Drums, Beyerdynamic Microphones, Slapklatz Damper, Tunerfish Lug locks.
