This is Janco Bystron, I was born in Hannover in Germany and I currently live in Berlin. These pages contain information regarding different areas of my work, including drumming, teaching and also scientific research. As a drummer I work with different styles of music. My favourites are Latin styles, especially Brazilian rhythms. 

My scientific work, which I conducted for the College of Music Dresden in the Department of Musicology (, deals with Brazilian percussion. My thesis for the conferral of a doctorate is entitled „Brazilian Grooves“. More information about this area can be found in the ‘Musicology’- column.
