Your Instructor

Kirill Osherov has started his journey as a musician in 2010 taking workshops at the Labyrinth festival on Crete Island, Greece. While having ethnic percussion classes back in 2005 he saw the importance in exploring the tradition, went strait for the source and learned from the best. He soon had the opportunity to boost his skills with such masters as Pedram Khavarzamini, Zohar Fresko, Misirli Ahmet, and Aleix Tobias.

Soon after he became the sole percussionist in Russia to master the classical Iranian tombak. It is a remarkable instrument with a unique deep trace sound designed to showcase a refined technique of a skilled musician.

Later in 2016 Kirill begins a series of musical experiments with Hang drum to unleash his new talent in melody composition. This new musical avenue leads him into collaboration with Gennady Lavrentiev and Paata Chekaberia and Treugolnyy Son Project. It quickly evolves into a series of vibrant performances with intoxicating fusion of the World, Ethno and Jazz styles. The Treugolnyy Son had an initial kick off at the LevelDva, the Russian Chillrave label and now proclaims to be one of the most innovative styles in the live music scene.

Kirill performed on the same stage with such musicians and projects as: Ross Daly, Kelly Thoma, Efren Lopes, Pedram Khavarzamini, Zohar Fresco, Derya Turkan, Misirli Ahmet, Aleix Tobias, Yurdal Toksan, Stelios Petrakis, Ido Segal, Hooshang Farahani, Kourosh Ghazvineh, Syavash Valipoor, Xristos Barbas, Norayr Barsegyan, Sergey Starostin, Nadishana, David Kuckhermann, Kabesao, Hang Massive, Avi Adir, David Swarup, Alisbar, Authentic Light Orchestra, Seven Eight Band, Matsumoto Zoku, Farafi, Marimba Plus, Geju, Betelgeize.

Kirill writes music for theater, cinema, audio books, holds music seminars in different natural places in Russia, and teaching in Moscow percussion school.
Kirill is a member of the international orchestra "Mitos" patronized by Ross Daly in Crete.

Festivals: Usadba Jazz, Wild Mint, KAMWA, World Drums, UFO HANG FEST, Labyrinth Music, Juwish Music Festival in Amsterdam, ETHNO DRUM, Empty Hills, Mandala Fest, Sun Drums, TRIMURTI and many others.
Kirill travels with tours and master classes to India, Greece, Germany, the Netherlands, Ukraine, Belarus.
