Alan Preims

Born and raised in Italy, Alan started his musical career on the electric guitar. From the age of 17 he performed in numerous gigs and concerts around the country. He occasionally filled in for drummers and through that discovered his love for percussion, which then became his main focus.

He spent many years learning handdrums such as Congas, Cajon and Bata-Drums from Masters of the Art (Rosario Jermano, Luca Scorziello, Giovanni Imparato and Maurizio Ravalico, David Pattman, and El Panga) and performed in various groups with repertoire ranging from Brazilian and Cuban Music to Italian Folk and Pop.

Currently based in County Galway, he is performing and recording regularly in Ireland and abroad for various songwriters and orchestras (Emmet Scanlan and What The Good Thought, The Getaway Gondola, and Baile an Salsa).
