About Ben Walsh

Ben Walsh has been touring professionally as a musician and drummer since the age of 18 and is not showing any signs of slowing down the pace. He has earned himself a phenomenal reputation internationally and abroad, and is celebrated as one of Australia's most accomplished percussionists and performers. A student of Newtown High School of the Performing Arts, his career began in 1994 when he formed the popular trio Pablo Percusso at the University of Western Sydney and for 8 years they toured throughout Australia and internationally in the US, Canada and Singapore. Ben later joined the Japanese taiko drumming group Taikoz and worked for 6 years with Ian Cleworth and master drummer Eitetsu Hayashi; extensively training in the Wadaiko drum form and performing in Japan. He formed the Australian electronic Drum & Bass sensation The Bird, in the late 1990's. He still performs with them, to date - after achieving multiple album releases and a solid die-hard fan base. After developing 4 self-directed solo shows and playing the Sydney Opera House with two of these productions, Ben left for Asia, performing in Taipei, Hong Kong and Singapore. He then transitioned into composition and sound design and composed numerous short film and modern dance scores, earning a nomination for Best Score at the prestigious Green Room Awards in Melbourne 2007. His collaborations with master percussionist Bobby Singh have led to the formation of two groups: Dha and Circle of Rhythm with musical performances alongside well-known artists such as Billy Cobham, Ernest Ranglin and Airto Moreira. Ben and Bobby travelled to India several times for collaborations and performances in Mumbai, Dehli and Pune, which inspired the SBS documentary 'I Belong Everywhere', as part of the VIVA series, featuring Ben and Bobby's musical adventures. His Orkestra Of The Underground, performed to a sold out audience at the Sydney Opera House when he debuted a score to Shaun Tan's book The Arrival as part of the 2010 Graphic Festival, with encore performances throughout 2011. He composed and performed the score for the sold out 2011 season of 'My Bicycle Loves You' which garnered him a prestigious Helpmann Award nomination for Best Musical Direction. This production was with Legs On The Wall for Sydney + Perth Festivals, directed by Patrick Nolan. Ben was co-director and performer for the Tom Tom Crew who sold out seasons in New York, Edinburgh, London and Sydney solidly for 5+ years. They toured extensively throughout Europe with seasons in France, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany.
