(Português) Yuri Alexander

I started my drums and percussion studies at age 8 in São Paulo, capital. I grew up always surrounded by music, following my family’s work.
I participated in several musical competitions, among them the FICO (Internal Festival of the Objective College), in which I was awarded 2 consecutive years.
I integrate the Heavy Metal bands Illuhmina, FireGun, Prometherion and Heresy – Pantera Tribute, as well as the Iyá-Batá Percussion Group, exerting intense activity in the music scene of the State of São Paulo.
I studied with great names of the battery, like Amilcar Christófaro (Torture Squad), Aquiles Priester (Angra, Hangar), Alan Marques (Sangrena), Dámaso Cerruti and Mestre Dinho Gonçalves.
I am a teacher and instructor at the Beat Drums Battery Institute, as well as other institutions.

My Cymbal

I really like the sound and versatility of the B10 league. With the X10, Rage 10 and MS series, I can explore the maximum of timbres and textures that I look for in Heavy Metal and in many musical styles.
