The Drummers

Furio Chirico

Furio Chirico, historic Italian drummer, is the artistic director of Drummers Channel Made in Italy.
Furio is founder of Arti & Mestieri – progressive rock band on the scene since 1974 – and the only Italian drummer that took part in the Modern Drummer Festival in 2002 and later in 2008 cited as “Superdrummer “by the prestigious American magazine “Drumhead”, along with 5 other great drummers in the world: Mike Mangini, Virgil Donati, Marco Minnemann, Thomas Lang and Grant Collins; and as well pioneer of Italian drum teaching, by creating a cutting-edge didactic method.

Furio plays with: Tama, Meinl, Vater, Evans, Kimerism Gongs, Power Feet

In Italy there is a dense undergrowth of music school, multimedia and promotional resources concerning the world of drums and percussion, but none big, complete or structured enough and none managed in a reliable way by skilled personnel able to manage and to officially represent its national education as the Drummers Channel Made in Italy aims to be.
Therefore this is a commitment, a responsibility and an honor to the teaching service and the enhancement of the musical staff of our country, promoted energetically towards the Peninsula and the whole world.
