Chuck Wood is a multi percussionist from Northwest New Jersey who has recorded and toured the U.S. with his friend Arjun Alan Bruggeman (currently with Krishna Das) in their world percussion band known as Ghandharva.  He has also appeared live or recorded with Michael Franti, Ganga Giri, Neal Casal, David Darling, and John Ginty, to name just a few.

Since 2004, Chuck has been exploring the art of accompanying Yoga classes with live drumming. This exploration has led him across the US playing for various styles of yoga such as Anusara, Vinyasa Flow, Kripalu, Kundalini, and Hatha, putting him on the leading edge of the yoga and live music scene that is flourishing across the country. Starting this endeavor out as a solo performer, he would later involve guitarist Colin Allured from North Carolina. Together they would evolve into the duo known asDhamaru, performing at yoga studios and retreat centers throughout the country.

Whether performing solo or with a band, Chuck loves the art of music and rhythm and continues to explore its depths through live performance and recording. You can learn more and listen to samples of his music at:
