Razvan Ristea

Luna Amara

"Hi, my name's Razvan Ristea and I'm from Romania. I was born in 1978 and I've been keeping rhythm since I was a young boy. Almost self-taught as far as drums go, I got my first band together with some friends back in '93. It was good for a start, but it wasn't until the year 2000 that things got a little bit more serious. I auditioned for a local band, Luna Amara, and they've had me as their drummer ever since. We've released 4 albums, had hundreds of gigs here in Romania, as well as in other European countries. We're playing a brand of alternative metal, or at least that's what they say, hehe. Lately, I've been keeping busy with some hip-hop projects as well; I guess a little diversity is always good.

Drumming has granted me with awesome experiences, from being able to play the music that I love, together with my bandmates in Luna Amara, to sharing the stage with bands such as Alice In Chains, Ozzy Osbourne, Rammstein, Faith No More or Deftones and getting to meet amazing drummers. Eventually, I was admitted into the SONOR family and I must confess that it's an honor to be part of such an extraordinary gathering of drummers."
