Mark Essien was born in Ghana and really deserves to be named a multi-talented musician. He plays drums, pan pipes, guitar, keyboard and is also a much sought-after singer. His true love however, is playing percussion – he dominates all imaginable techniques.
This is surely the reason why, since 1988, he has been a member of Herbert Grönemeyer's band. He has supported the most successful German artist on numerous live tours and studio productions. And since 2008, he has also been responsible for the perfect live rhythm of Howard Carpendale, a German Schlager legend. With Carpendale, just like with Grönemeyer, he has been on stages in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
If Mark is not playing with the two German giants, he concentrates on his many private band projects and organizes workshops – among others, also in his home country, Ghana.
