Devadip was declared the grand prize winner of the Thomas Lang’s 2013 Big Drum Bonanza competition prior to making his way out from Peru for the 5 day event.   Here’s his winning performance:Over the course of the 5 days, I obtained a lot of footage of Devadip in Camarillo and Oxnard.   From his practicing, getting all kinds of instruction, jamming on a V-Drum kit with Chris Coleman on the bass in the classroom to his performance at the Drum Channel studios in Oxnard and collecting his prizes that were presented to him, Devadip made it very apparent how committed to drumming he is and that drumming is his life.     With his unique drumming style, great personality, and unmistakable hair, he was clearly a stand out at the event.     DSC09368  Here’s Devadip warming up and then jamming a bit with Chris Coleman.
