“Nils Fischer is one of the top percussionists in Europe, touring and recording constantly with Nueva Manteca , his own groups Timbazo and CaboCubaJazz , and with many others. He has shared the stage with such legendary figures as Giovanni Hidalgo, Pío Leiva, Orestes Vilató, Armando Peraza, Paquito D'Rivera and Chocolate Armenteros.“

In 2007 he released a CD as a tribute to veteran percussionist Joe Cuba. It is entitled ¡Gracias Joe Cuba! and several top artists contributed to its making. The album has got rave reviews both at home and abroad and was top ranking in many Latin American Hitparades.

His latest release - together with Cape Verdean master pianist Carlos Matos - ‘Rikeza y Valor’ [CaboCubaJazz, 2011] is receiving great reviews internationally. Currently the band is touring succesfully at major venues in the Netherlands and abroad.

"Nils is not only very musical - he also knows what he is doing!"  Armando Peraza

Nils Fischer, one of the most important percussionists in Holland, has exploded as a leader with this 1st CD which feels like his 20th CD as a leader.  It has to be one of the top recordings of the year!”
