Luis Mora Matus

drummer, composer, researcher

Luis Mora Matus is an established Chilean drummer currently based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Luis is an active drummer in the European jazz scene playing with various bands across Europe (Sweet Toko (NL), Quantum Trio (PL), Juliana Martina Quintet (NL), Cocoliche Trio (NL/ARG). For the past years Luis has been developing a unique sound merging techniques and aestetics from progressive metal into his contemporary jazz drumming vocabulary. This has led him to simultaneously pursue a cutting edge doctoral research at the Konlinklijk Conservatorium Brussel (Royal Conservatory of Brussels). The research is the inspiration for his own band MORA MATUS, where he experiments with these concepts. They are currently in the process of recording a debut album later this year.

  • I am looking to expand my network and possibilities for collaborations with venues, jazz insitutions, and other professionals in the field.
