Christoph Haberer, drummer and percussionist – or in the vernacular of his southern German "Alemannic" dialect, the "Drümmele Maa" (the drumming man) – is furthermore a composer, and a live and studio electronics expert.
Born in Donaueschingen/Germany, he has performed with renowned jazz artists such as Lee Konitz, Benny Bailey, Wilton Gaynair… In many projects he worked together with percussionists of various styles such as Dou Dou N’daye Rose, K. Sivaraman, Carlo Rizzo, Ramesh Shotham, Robin Schulkowsky.
In the early 1980s, Christoph Haberer founded his ´Drümmele Maa´ formation and had his first encounter with electronic equipment, which laid the foundations for his own creations and compositions.
On behalf of the Goethe Institute, Haberer has been on numerous concert tours in Africa, India, Southern Europe, North America, Scandinavia and China. He has initiated and participated in various international projects such as the percussion highlight ”On the outer edges of Europe” for and in Weimar – European Cultural Capital in 1999, the project with the African drummers of ”Elima” and the ”Kölner Saxophon Mafia” at JazzFest Berlin, or as ´Maître de Tambours´ with ”Transe Express” at the Hanover EXPO.
Haberer’s unique combination of computer-aided/live-triggered electronics and virtuoso percussion performance has enabled him to excel as soloist at the Cologne Triennial, the Jazz Festival in Montreal, the European Broadcast Union in Helsinki, the "Deutschland-Promenade" in Guangzhou/China (2008), as guest soloist with the WDR-Bigband ("Bergmannslieder" Ruhr 2010), at the opening of "Germany+India 2011-2012" in Delhi, Chennai and Bangalore.
