Master percussionist, Ozzy began playing the Darbuka in 2001. Fascinated by rhythm, Ozzy is constantly striving to innovate the art of drumming by developing new combinations using interesting techniques. Half Moroccan and half Egyptian, Ozzy was born in Israel and raised in Miami, Florida. His showmanship and style is reflective of his hot-blooded roots and influenced by his hometown’s vibrant Latin dance and music scene. Ozzy’s drumming is eclectic; the same way you see Ozzy drumming to today’s hottest music, you can find him performing alongside classically trained Egyptian bellydancers. Ozzy has performed with renowned groups such as Hahbi’Ru, Zatar and Qadim as well as popular bellydancers such as Jillina, Nathalie, Ansuya, and Alla Kushnir. Ozzy has recorded with world famous composer Paul Denlitir, and with Latin Grammy nominated artist Elsten Torres. Currently, Ozzy is on tour as the lead drummer for Jillina’s theatre production, Bellydance Evolution, as well as teaching workshops all around the world and online on his website. His new album just released last summer, entitled “Thunder Drum,” is original music from the Bellydance Evolution show and few new hot drum solo tracks.
