My name is Nickolas, and I'm origionally from California. I moved out to North Carolina, First Louisburg, then Raleigh about 3 years ago. I met some amazing percussionists at the Raleigh Drum Circle's weekly Hoop Jam, and next thing I know I'm a percussionist. Also, through the Hoop Jam, I came into contact with the local circus performers, fire performers and flow artists who perform and teach in the Triangle. Eventually I began spinning Poi and Staff as well, because when in Rome...
My percussion education began with Traditional West African rhythms on the Djembe. The Raleigh Drum Circle is home to a number of amazing West African musicians, and teachers. As I grew comfortable with handing and proper technique, my own bent towards Hip Hop rhythms made itself felt.
After a year and a half of that, I picked up a set of Congas, and studied Folkloric Afro-Cuban Polyrhythms with Greg Whitt. Since, I have played percussion with Funk bands, Jazz bands, and to accompany live poetry, acoustic giutarists and at church services.
My Poi work is influenced largely by my fascination with Math. The fact that it's fun to do and fun to watch are bonuses, but Flow arts in general are, for me, a medium through which I can explore math and geometry.
