Originally from Poland, Matt (Mateusz) Bazgier is multi-instrumentalist and music producer, currently living and creating in New York with the Golden Drum community. Under the guidance of Maestro Manuel Rufino, Tito La Rosa and Elders of many traditions, he studies the use of sacred music in many forms. His music is deeply rooted in a world of spirits and is treated as a spiritual practice. “I understand sound and music as a tool to create energy, transform, heal and communicate with the higher planes. I am particularly interested in combining styles and musical worlds to discover new musical grounds. Music is my way of service to the world.”


  1. Hello AJ I am waiting for my didgeridoo to arrive so I can play. I love your teaching style. Hearing the sounds connects me to Mother Earth in a powerful way. I am so happy I found your site. I worked 21 years at a continuation high school and we did several drumming sessions and the kids loved it. Keep inspiring with your open heart and wild music. ?✅⭐️?
