ORIGIN & WRITE UP OF DRUM-OFF GLOBAL

What is DRUM-OFF GLOBAL?


Drum-Off Global is an annual international drum competition that gives drummers an opportunity to showcase their skills in a drum solo on an acoustic drum set without any backing tracks or use of electronics. This invaluable platform is also used to advance any drummers’ career further.

Since its inception, the competition have elevated many drummers from many countries, helping them in their pursuit for music-related careers and putting them on a grand and well received platform, allowing their talent to shine even brighter.
It also presents the perfect space for drummers to see drummers from other parts of the world. Being a true international competition, Drum-Off Global is open to drummers of all races, nationalities and genders and all levels of drumming.

Most importantly, it encourages drummers to get out of their comfort zone and push themselves to improve, and perform the best version of their performance, taking on new ideas and techniques, and turning it into a style of their own. Past Grand Champions and competitors from Asia Pacific, North & South America and Europe have participated in this competition both online and 'live'.
In 2020, we will adopt an unprecedented format and the first and only in the world:

'ELEVATING DRUMMERS EVERYWHERE'

When we say "everywhere", we mean everywhere. All 197 countries on the planet will have their own Drum-Off, and after their winners are chosen, they will not stop there; they will progress up to the global level; to drum-off against all other country winners through an ONLINE format. No more boundaries, No more hurdles, No more obstruction to your right to be the one to represent your country on the global stage and to win in Drum-Off Global!




What is the Mission of Drum-Off Global organization?


The Drum-Off Global organization's mission is to promote excellent drumming & top musicianship and to lead the Global drumming movement aka "Elevating Drummers Everywhere".




What is the Vision of Drum-Off Global organization?


The vision of Drum-Off Global is to build a bigger, more vibrant and robust music industry with drummers taking a lead role.
Second and also a core vision, is to very soon gather all the country winners in one host country. We undertake this massive task because we love Drummers and Drumming!




What is Drum-Off Global so passionately trying to advocate through its drum competition?


Firstly, the Drum-Off Global organization does not advocate that playing Music or Drums should be like taking part in a sports competition, but however, the element of “reaching higher” during the preparations for a competition like Drum-Off Global with its vastness inevitably turns the drummer that joins into a much better player. It is evident with all the Music competitions around the world and how many, many music legends emerged from these contests through the generations.
…and if nothing else, the person that you should be concerned about “beating” should be none other than yourself!




Why is Drum-Off Global finals not a “live” event in 2020?


Short Answer : Needs proper country organizers in each country.
Long answer : We are in the process of guiding and facilitating every country to have their own Drum-Off (and every country Drum-Off should be helmed by their own countrymen, don’t you agree?) because we are creating and curating a bona fide, genuine world-wide drum competition where every country get to present their undisputed winners to the Drum-Off Global platform and drum-off against the rest of the world.
When the time comes, that there are 50 or more country Drum-Off organizers rising up to the occasion to do what they rightfully need to do and fully support their winners in travels and subsidies, then the Drum-Off Global finals would become a “Live” event!




Is COVID-19 the reason that Drum-Off Global has decided to be an Online Final this year?


HAHAHA DEFINITELY NOT! We have decided to make it online since December 2019.
Now, with the current spreading of COVID-19, it makes even more sense to craft and practice your solos safely in the comfort of your homes/studios and record them privately! Be a socially responsible drummer!




Why is there no Girls Category this year?


It is because after past 3 years of having this category, the ladies are ready now!
Come on ladies, you can win it too! Drumming was never just meant for the boys!




Why only feature the Acoustic Drum set in Drum-Off Global 2020?


The Acoustic Drum set, as an instrument, is arguably the most versatile and most widely used percussion instrument in the world today.

And with your continued support, we will feature the other popular percussion instruments in time to come.
