This is Janco Bystron, I was born in Hannover in Germany and I currently live in Stuttgart, a small city in the Southwest of Germany. These pages contain information regarding different areas of my work, including drumming, teaching and also scientific research. As a drummer I work with different styles of music. My favourites are Latin styles, especially Brazilian rhythms.

My scientific work, which I conducted for the College of Music Dresden in the Department of Musicology (www.hfmdd.de), deals with Brazilian percussion. My thesis for the conferral of a doctorate is entitled "Brazilian Grooves". More information about this area can be found in the ‘Research’- column.
