Adrian Portia is a professional drummer/percussionist based in Melbourne, Australia. He started playing drums from the age of 10, touring the country in his dad’s band at the age of 12. Performing every week he gained alot of experience in his younger years, which helped him become the musician he is today. At the age of 19, he was runner up in Australia’s Best Up and Coming Drummer competition, which garnered endorsement deals with Premier Drums, Sabian Cymbals, and Vater Drumsticks. About 7 years he started experimenting with different hand percussion, and in 2008 brought about his love and desire to play a handpan when he saw his first “Hang” (it is not a drum). In 2013 he received his first handpan, and since that time has been working on his own unique percussive style, focused on a new musical path to continue to develop the craft of playing these amazing instruments. He has released an album of handpan music called Life In Colour.
