is a musical art project, based on the (sliding-) didgeridoo and bass-clarinet.
The combination of these instruments together with live looping, acoustic and electronic sounds results in: Hybrid World Beats.

In 2017 they released their debut album: Drop It 
After playing shows in Europe and the USA for over two years, their music grew a lot in to an energetic live act!

With their new album ELLIPSIS (2022) THUNDERCROW delivers a great show with dynamic bass-clarinet riffs, beats, live percussion, live looping and epic didgeridoo-sounds.
Hybrid World Beats.
