David Kuckhermann

I have been a fan of David Kuckhermann since well before discovering the handpan. Having been obsessed with tabla, frame drum, riq, and darbuka one of the first videos I found when YouTube was created was David playing frame drum along side Ahmad Al Khatib on the Oud, which was the first time I had ever been exposed to the oud as well.  This was the video that made me a life long fan:
