Konstantyn Napolov's love to complex rhythm patterns and beat were manifested in an early age. After one of the performances of the little drummer, where his grandfather's head was the instrument, his parents decided to send him to the music school entrusting his talent to the hands of professional teachers.
Konstantyn received his Master of Music in Percussion Performance and Orchestral Conducting Diploma at the Kiev National Academy of Music, has won more than ten prestigious national and international competitions, worked as a deputy concertmaster of percussions in several national orchestras of Ukraine, and also starred in the musical TV shows.

Since 2011 he is the leader of the theatrical percussion ensemble "Davai Perkusion". The ensemble has performed in The Netherlands, France, Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg.
