Harald Thiemann was born in Görlitz in 1966. He studied Classical Percussion at the “Musikhochschule Dresden”. He gained his first experience as a solo timpanist of the Dresden Philharmonic before turning to rock and jazz music. A phase of intensive self-study at the drumset accompanied this decision. He subsequently played in many bands with a wide variety of repertoire: jazz, funk, Brazilian, Balkan music, as well as rock music, big band and modern music. He also composed stage music for several German theatres. In Berlin he works with his ensemble “Club Jazz Debakel”, which performs in the sphere of improvised Jazzrock. Tours and guest performances have so far led him through Europe, North Africa, China & Central America.
