Ridwan Johari has been playing the drums since the age of 14. He started out by playing classical music under the percussion section of his secondary school band and found the drumkit to be his favourite instrument.
He is currently the drummer for local pop-punk outfit Morning Martians and sessionist for Tacit Aria.
He plays mostly rock, but his influences are very diverse; ranging from hip-hop to metal, progressive to pop and so on. He has sessioned for a few bands too, with genres ranging from alternative rock to progressive metal and even instrumental post-rock.
Aside from performing, Ridwan is very passionate about educating and sharing his drumming knowledge to the masses. He is currently a full-time drum educator and also gives private lessons to drummers.
He’s currently endorsing Zion Cymbals.
