Hans C. Rivero /Esp



Born into a family of musicians, he began his journey at the age of 6 at the Teresa Berganza Conservatory in Madrid, specializing in percussion and graduating with honors.
He later obtained a degree in percussion from the Real Conservatorio Superior de Música de Madrid (2012), and furthered his studies in drumming under the esteemed educator Eduardo Solas.

In addition to his teaching duties in drumming, first at the Valdemoro Municipal School (2010-2017) and then at the Tres Cantos School (2017-present), he is actively involved in various musical projects and fields. This includes serving as a session musician (currently at Metropol Studios, The Metal Factory Studios), percussionist for the national orchestra dedicated to recording film scores, with notable works such as the tribute concert to John Williams at the Teatro Real in Madrid, and the recording of soundtracks for “Klaus” (Netflix), “Sordo”, “As Bestas”, “Cuando ya no esté”, and “Otros Mundos” Movistar+), among others. He is also a member of various bands (Besmaya, Oscuro Culto), with whom he has toured prestigiousvenues and festivals throughout Spain (Resurrection Fest, Download Festival, San San Festival, Jardín de las Delicias, Sala La Riviera, Sala El Sol, Sala Caracol, Ochoymedio, Sala Zentral, and many more), as well as performing with different orchestras (Magistralia, Santa Cecilia) in venues such as the Auditorio Nacional in Madrid, Palau de la Música in Barcelona, Auditorio Kursaal in Donosti, and Teatro de la Maestranza in Sevilla, among others.

Since 2018, he has been an endorser for the prestigious drum brand Mapex, proudly displaying their name in each of his recording sessions and numerous concerts. Recently, with Oscuro Culto, he completed a European tour covering cities such as Paris, Amsterdam, Cologne, Mainz, Zurich, Trento, Bologna, Milan, and Toulouse. They are currently in the process of composing their new LP, scheduled to be recorded in late 2024, and planning a new European tour in 2025. With Besmaya, he is embarking on a festival tour (18 dates) from May to September, performing at venues such as FiB (Benicàssim), Sonorama (Aranda de Duero and Ibiza), Cruilla (Barcelona), Jardín de los Sueños (Madrid), and Coca-Cola Music Experience (Madrid) among others.
Additionally, a club tour will commence in October of this year (more than 20 booked dates), lasting until March 2025, including a two-night stint at the Sala La Riviera in Madrid (capacity: 2500). Every date managed by The Music Republic booking agency and sponsored by Mahou. I’ve been using Balbex G2B drumsticks for the past couple of years, and I couldn’t be happier with them. Their exceptional quality, durability, and perfect balance have significantly enhanced my performance on stage and in the studio. It would be a privilege to join your esteemed roster and continue representing a brand that consistently delivers top-notch products tailored to the needs of professional drummers.
