Puerto Rican Daniel Díaz was born with rhythm in his hands. And it has been his rhythm and his hands that have made him a unique artist in his class; as unique as his musical creation known as "The Tripandero". This ingenious creation, devised by Daniel in 2010, combines the rhythm of three frame drums that produce the sound of the typical Puerto Rican Plenera as a single instrument.
With the help of René Pérez of “Residente”, Daniel has set foot in more than 57 countries, showing the world his ingenuity and the musical power of his Tripandero. This young percussionist, arranger and composer has also collaborated with a variety of musical stars such as Calle 13, Shakira, Ricky Martin, Carlos Vives, Ricardo Montaner, Mon Laferte, Bad Bunny, Giovanni Hidalgo, Diego El Cigala, The Great Combo of Puerto Rico, Ismael Miranda ... and has performed on global platforms, such as the Latin Grammys 2017, hundreds of festivals around the world, Austin Live (City Limits) and Cirque de Soleil by Leo Messi.
Composer Daniel Platzman, a native of Atlanta, has played trumpet in a concert band, violin in a pit band, viola in an orchestra, guitar/vocals in a rock band, and bass in a Manhattan club. In 2006, he participated in the prestigious Betty Carter Jazz Ahead program at the Kennedy Center, Washington D.C.
He is currently the drummer for the Las Vegas-based rock band Imagine Dragons, with whom he shared the 2014 Grammy award for Best Rock Performance. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Film Scoring from the Berklee College of Music, where he studied with Hal Crook, Sheldon Mirowitz and Ian Froman (among others), played in the Berklee Concert Jazz Orchestra (led by Greg Hopkins), the Urban Outreach Jazz Orchestra (led by Lin Biviano) and the Berklee Rainbow Big Band (led by Phil Wilson), and received the Vic Firth Award for Outstanding Musicianship as well as the Michael Rendish Award in Film Scoring.

Richard has toured internationally with Wishbone Ash guitarist Jamie Crompton, has played in Sunking with the likes of Bass legend Rudy Sarzo and Guitar great John 5, as well as the Poorboys.
