Biography

William Emanuel “Billy” Cobham (born May 16, 1944, in Panama) – Panamanian by birth, a New Yorker by upbringing, and a resident of Switzerland for more than 25 years, Cobham has pursued an ever-broadening, ever-deepening engagement with the world not only as a master drummer and percussionist but as a composer, producer, educator, and clinician who gives service through music even as he constantly expands his personal creative expression.

Coming to prominence in the late 1960s and early 1970s with trumpeter Miles Davis and then with Mahavishnu Orchestra, Cobham according to Allmusic’s reviewer is “generally acclaimed as fusion’s greatest drummer with an influential style that combines explosive power and exacting precision”.
