Onno Govaert is a drummer and “instant composer”. Govaert is a central figure in the Amsterdam jazzcircuit, representing a young and talented generation of improvising musicians. As part of bands such as Cactus Truck he gained international recognition. “Onno Govaert stokes the band’s fires with spazzy rumbles and unflagging motion”, commented Chicago Reader, and Volkskrant described his style as “full of initiative and uninhibited.”
