Janco Boy Bystron, born 1979 in Hanover (Germany), studied drums and percussion (jazz/rock/pop) at the Hochschule für Musik Carl Maria von Weber in Dresden, Germany. For his PhD in musicology, he focused on the musical culture of Brazil and published the results in »Brasilianische Grooves« (Epubli 2018). With the exposition of macro- and micro-rhythmic structures in popular music and their embedding in sociocultural practice and ways of thinking in modern societies, he wants to contribute to a detailed reflection on motives for artistic activities and their reception. Janco currently works as a freelance drummer, author and music teacher in Germany.
