Drummer/composer Cindy Blackman is known as a powerful percussionist from the hard-bop mold. She was born in Yellow Springs, Ohio, on Nov. 18, 1959. and raised in Connecticut, Cindy Blackman decided at the age of eight that she was going to be a drummer and she began her musical career as a New York street performer. She spent three semesters at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts and also studied with legendary teacher Alan Dawson. Stints with school orchestras and bands, and a place in the local fife and drum corps had helped her develop her technique and a unique understanding of her chosen instrument. After college, her love of jazz drew her to New York City in the 80’s, where she became friends with many of her drumming heroes, including Art Blakey, Elvin Jones and Tony Williams and since that time, she has been seen and heard by millions of people all over the world performing with her own group and also with Lenny Kravitz, and everybody who have seen Lenny's band live since she became the official drummer live for him would acclaim her talent.
