Gioele Pagliaccia is a drummer and composer born in Marsciano (Perugia) but raised between Italy, Santo
Domingo and the United States.
Thanks to his step-dad he started playing percussion at age eight, but quickly switched to drums and taught

with John Frusciante and Josh Klinghoffer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers) with whom he still plays whenever
