"Hamid Drake (born August 3, 1955) is an American jazz drummer and percussionist. He lives in Chicago, IL but spends a great deal of time touring worldwide. By the close of the 1990s, Hamid Drake was widely regarded as one of the best percussionists in jazz and avant improvised music. Incorporating Afro-Cuban, Indian, and African percussion instruments and influence, in addition to using the standard trap set, Drake has collaborated extensively with top free-jazz improvisers. Drake also has performed world music; by the late 70s, he was a member of Foday Musa Suso's Mandingo Griot Society and has played reggae throughout his career.

Drake has worked with trumpeter Don Cherry, pianist Herbie Hancock, saxophonists Pharoah Sanders, Fred Anderson, Archie Shepp and David Murray and bassists Reggie Workman and William Parker (in a large number of lineups)

He studied drums extensively, including eastern and Caribbean styles. He frequently plays without sticks; using his hands to develop subtle commanding undertones. His tabla playing is notable for his subtlety and flair. Drake's questing nature and his interest in Caribbean percussion led to a deep involvement with reggae."

descriptions, reviews, &c.
"Recorded just over three years ago at Stockholm's showcase for adventurous improvised music, the Glenn Miller Café, this second volume of duets between Drake and Israeli-born tenorman Assif Tsahar (the first was Soul Bodies, Ayler 024) provides an hour's worth of tight, dialectic-smashing conversations of stately Newk-Trane phrase wringing, jubilant calypso and funk salvos - they even close with "St. Thomas". With similarly West Indian ebullience, Peter Kowald's composition "Mother and Father" evokes both Rollins and Don Cherry, as Tsahar's visceral, skunky verses make clear. "Warriors of Stillness" features a more typically heavy backbeat performance from Drake, but jagged skronk is as much part of the equation as he and Tsahar make a run for a rather vast conceptual palette, from biting free exchanges on "Praying Mantis" to the mean multiphonics-laced blues of "Handling Clouds," on which Drake settles into an easy swing of cross-rhythms and momentary stalls. Strong and highly nuanced tenor-drums interplay, worth investigating by both fans and converts."-Clifford Allen, Paris Transatlantic Magazine
