"Through the Helium Music Project, Brian Adler has turned the world into his playground… the emotions real and the results rewarding." ~ Richard Kamins, All About Jazz. Read full article here.

"Adler’s music blurs the lines between 'jazz' and 'world' music and Helium is a delightfully uplifting representation of his musical philosophy." ~Alexander Ariff, WBGO and Hardbop Jazz Journal.

"The soulfulness and depth of the musical interaction here is evident right from the start. A most enjoyable slice of thoughtful and edgy-et-accessible modern jazz from an intriguing new group." ~Dave Wayne, All About Jazz.


About Brian Adler

Brian AdlerArgentine-American percussionist/composer Brian Shankar Adler had his first musical experience at the age of five, studying North Indian music.  Adler went on to study percussion at the New England Conservatory, and he studied with Billy Hart, Billy Higgins, Danilo Pérez, Misha Masud, Bob Moses, among others who helped him discover his own voice incorporating jazz, Indian, South American and western classical traditions. Adler's understanding of these four various rhythmic traditions contribute to his uniquely earthy and melodic approach to the drums.

Since then, Brian has toured around the world and performed at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Symphony Space, Thelonious (Buenos Aires), the Ear Shot Jazz festival (Seattle), and Passinger Fabrik (Munich). Dave Wayne of Jazz wrote: "Adler is an amazing instrumentalist who has seemingly mastered all aspects of percussion... his bubbling, percolating rhythms carry the music forward in the most graceful possible ways."


About Helium Music Project:

While touring throughout Argentina in the summer of 2009, drummer/composer Brian Adler began to organize a musical project called Helium with which, possessing a high binding energy, can take any physical form. The New York permutation of the group transcends the known boundaries of jazz and world music and highlights Adler's love for South American and Indian rhythmic interplay, texture, and soulful melodies. "A delightfully uplifting representation of [Adler's ] musical philosophy," says Alex Ariff of All About Jazz.
