Ronan Skillen (Didgi-Taal) on SoundBetter

I've been a session musician for 20 years, have recorded on over 50 albums, produced numerous soundtracks for movies (including 'My Octopus Teacher - Netflix), as well as touring with the likes of Rodriguez, Jonny Clegg and Ancient Agents. I specialise in Tabla, Didgeridoo and north African percussion. World / Folk / African / Jazz / Electro

Ronan has been exploring a fusion of tabla, percussion and didgeridoo by means of a hybrid percussion kit which he designed. This has become part of his permanent set-up and demonstrates a rich textural variety and a unique versatility. He makes many of his instruments by hand, using natural objects such as seed pods, tree bark, cocoons, reeds and hide to create percussive sounds.

Ronan has featured his sound in musical genres across the board, from classical, rock and folk to electro, jazz, world music and hip-hop. He’s performed in South Africa, Germany, Switzerland, Holland, France, Lithuania, Swaziland, Mozambique, Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Madagascar, Namibia the UK and India, and has featured on many recordings and film scores.

Ronan has a home studio set up where he's able to record, produce and collaborate with people across the globe. As recording engineer and producer, or mixing engineer, there's a wide pallet of services on offer.
