History / journey

BIOGRAPHY

Known for his sensitivity, musicality and innovative drumming, Ayman has found a unique musical voice as a result of his passion for jazz and his natural Tunisian folk music. He has been exposed in his early age to perform with countless stellar jazz artists and Grammy winners from allover the globe. His reputation has steadily grown with every performance and he is rapidly becoming one of the most brilliant drummer composer of his generation.

Early Life

Born in Tunis, Tunisia in 1986, Ayman grew up in a Tunisian folk, African and Arabic music environment. He started playing the violin in middle school before he showed an interest in playing Tunisian folk hand percussion & drums. Ayman’s early musical education was from the local folk music scene and a handful of live jazz/ fusion records, notably Billy Cobham & Chick Corea Electric Band.  After a few years of playing with local musicians, the self taught drummer began to see a rich potential for merging his folk influences with improvised music. This idea launched the journey of a young composer who taught himself to play the Piano and Oud to create his own music. Boujlida often says, “writing music has always been an integral part of being a musician to me”.

The Journey

Ayman’s love for music has taken him to India, where he studied Indian classical music with the legendary Dr. Ghatam Karthick. While studying, he also toured across the country playing with some of the most well known Indian artists, including Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, Shubankar Banerjee, Amrit kanjeera and Prasanna. A few years later, Mr Boujlida moved to New York City  where he attended the New School of Jazz on a strong merit scholarship. He continues to live in NYC where he is leading and touring with his own band in jazz festivals such as Reykjavic Jazz Festival, Carthage International Festival, Technopolis Athens and Dubai Jazz Festival appearing as a drummer, pianist, konnakol vocalist and a multi hand percussionist.
