About me

Tomas Oplatek

I started drumming in 2005. After attending the first workshop, led by Janos Crecelius, I was completely absorbed by drumming, and soon after I started to play in the band TiDiTaDe. Here I also learned to play other African instruments such as the balafon and krin.

My other teachers include Thomas Guei (Ivory Coast), with whom I did a month-long workshop directly in Ivory Coast. I also played with him several times in performances during his visit to the Czech Republic.

I am currently a member of the band Barati Squad and I play live accompaniment for African dance courses led by Simona Prokůpková and Tereza Pospěchová.

I have also been actively playing the piano all my life.
