At the age of 68 Indian master percussionist and composer Trilok Gurtu presents this, his 20th album as leader. But God Is A Drummer is to this listener’s mind different from previous albums, in that it is a survey of and a thank you to his major influences. And given the great number and heterogeneity of the musical heavy-weights he has over the last 50 years collaborated with, it is interesting to know now who he believes has shaped his music most.
