Check out these three drummers as they lay down some sweet beats on this man's tummy in what they call "Tummy Talk". These percussionists have been drumming together from the day they started middle school band and continued to drum in college in the university drumline and percussion ensembles. If you like to drum then you understand what it's like to constantly have a beat in your head and always have the need to drum on any kind object around you. From pots and pans, to pens and pencils, to tapping on your desk at work. These drummers take things to the next level by playing on a different kind of instrument--the human body.
The original idea and concept of Tummy Talk was thought up by Mike Chidsey, who was the producer and co-creator with Matt Nickle. Several ideas for videos have come to Chidsey and Nickle and they have recently worked together to create Tummy Talk. Nickle (composer) began creating and composing music since he was 12 and was excited to create some beats for this video. These two have more ideas to create a series of "drumming/music" videos and are excited to continue working together.
