“Harris Eisenstadt, a drummer and composer originally from Toronto, takes a fixer’s approach to music making, looking for ways to fit the pieces together.

One of only a handful of drummers equally well known for his work as a composer, the Brooklyn resident is among the most versatile and prolific musicians of his generation. His eclectic resume includes studies with some of the most respected names in jazz and improvised music, West African and Cuban drumming, and performances in genres ranging from film and theater to poetry and dance to contemporary classical and opera.
