The Rhythm of the Beat in Cassio Audi’s Heart

Drum beats are often soothing, rhythmic, and celebratory all at the same time. As an instrument that’s been used for many centuries as a way to communicate with others or call out an attack, drums have had a special place in music and culture around the world. The continual beat of a drum and the different ways they can sound have called many musicians to choose this instrument to be the one they play. Such was the case for a young Cassio Audi who found a calling in the rhythmic playing of the drums he heard.

So deep was this calling to play that Audi became a huge success in Brazil. The band he aided in founding, Viper, came together in 1985 at a time when the drums, being played with gusto, speed, and aggression, were a focal point of music that was called heavy metal. Inspired by other bands to reach great heights, Viper experienced immense success early and often with tours that took them around Brazil while their drummer, Audi, could be heard playing what could only be described as the sounds he felt in his heart being translated through the drums and more

The drumming of Audi and success of Viper was so strong that the band experienced global success within a few short years. Even though the band was only together for four years, they produced two albums and reached high on the charts around the world. Even though Audi gave up his drumming with the group after only four years, the sounds and the rhythm that plays in his heart and mind continue to aid him in reaching success in his life today. While we’ll never know the heights this group could have reached if they had stayed together, the lessons learned during this time help to guide Audi every day.
