Winning multiple awards as one of the finest modern drummers to explode on to the scene in 2014, German Anika Nilles is proof that it is never too late to start.  She didn’t take up the sticks professionally until she turned 26, but she has never looked back since. Boasting over 23 million views on social media platforms performing her original music, she appears as one of the most influential modern drumset artists of the 21st century. Playing with sophistication, style and a musical finesse that is rarely witnessed behind the drums, she is an inspiration to women the world over in what has been a traditionally male- dominated industry. That also caught the attention of legendary and Grammy winning Guitarist “Jeff Beck”, who choose her for his last world tour in 2022. Besides her musical career, Anika is passionate about education as well. She is department Chief at Germanys  “POPAKADEMIE”
