About The Author
Nora Thiele is a musician who moves fluidly among work in early music, world music, jazz and improvisation. Her repertoire encompasses traditional, experimental and classical music in equal measure. Her musical work is concerned above all with sounding out the intersections, boundaries and connections among genres, epochs and cultures. Nora Thiele, who is resident in Berlin, is considered one of the leading and most innovative specialists for framedrums.

She has furthermore gained a reputation as an accomplished and experienced leader of workshops in that field and frequently teaches oriental percussion and solkattu (a south Indian rhythmic language) in the “groove” in Berlin-Kreuzberg. She gave concerts in Germany, France, Poland, Italy, Turkey, Iran, Syria and China with her ensembles and as a soloist and guest musician.


My contribution to the project PFEFFER PERCUSSION
From my own intensive period of practice and study I know the desire for enjoyable and excellent literature for frame drum. Now I am very glad to contribute to the “Frame Drum Library” with the “Pieces for Frame Drums Vol.1” My own musical career showed me how occidental classic and traditional drum music interweave and I am convinced that it is a great advantage to extend the repertoire for frame drums as well as to develop the logic way of notation for instruments which favors the creativity of various artists in this field.

I particularly like the elaborate and enchanting graphic design. I am excited to watch the “Frame Drum Library” developing and I hope there will be more authors and artists who show the diversity of these instruments and musical cultures.
