THUNDERCROW

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.

THUNDERCROW was founded by Daphyd Sens and Rob van Barschot.
After playing in the band OMNIA for years, they decided to combine their forces.
In 2016 they started THUNDERCROW, and their Hybrid Beats were born…

In 2017 they released their debut album: Drop It 
This album was built in the studio before they played one single show! Via crowdfunding they were able to create this album which was the start of the band. After playing shows in Europe and the USA for over two years, their music grew a lot in to a energetic live act!

In 2018, Rob decided to leave the band to take more time for other projects.

That is where Zach came in. Zach joined ThunderCrow in 2018 as a guest musician and is now a full member of the band.
With his dynamic bass-clarinet sounds, live looping and amazing didge playing, he is lifting THUNDERRCROWs new sound to another level of Hybrid World Beats.
