The Piazzolla Drum Corp

The question is not how many drummers does it take to play Piazzolla. The question is: how many drummers CAN play Piazzolla all together at the same time? And, the answer based on this video is approximately 18.

It looks like a parent's concert night at the Schule für Individuelle Musik in Freilassing, Germany and percussion instructor, Radu Alex Buzac, is putting his students through their paces. Radu takes the stage near the end to show his skills and at the very end announces the names of all the students on the stage - a classy touch. The pianist is unnamed but deserves recognition - this is not the easiest accompanist job in the world - and, she plays a good Libertango. You can tell by the way the kids respond that Radu is a good teacher. He is also a remarkably good drummer - check out this video.

A good time was had by all and perhaps a world's record for most drummers on a single Piazzolla song was set.
