Gabriele Pollina is an Italian multi-instrumentalist whose musical journey began when he received his first drum kit at the age of six. Surrounded by a very musical environment, Gabrielle excelled with all percussion before realising his desire to combine beats with melody. He found the answer to his problems in the handpan.
With only 6 months of practice, Gabriele won the first prize at the ‘Handpan Race’ organised by the Handpan festival in Milan. He has since progressed to record his first solo album and even toured across Australia and Asia.
