GPN has toured and performed around Europe, Asia, South- and North America.

Between 2006-2015 I held the position as principal percussion and solo field drummer in the Swedish Army Band. As a military musiscian I got to travel and perform in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Germany, Schwitzerland, France, Afghanistan and Kosovo.

Since 2001 I´m a member of Ensemble Villancio. This ensemble has toured more than thirty countries with its Early World Music repertoire – foremost Latin American baroque music and early music.

Besides performing and teaching I´m also composing and producing music on my own label. 2 CD:s were released in 2017: “#marimbagram” and “Postcards”. In February 2019 the new album “Active 24/7” will be released.
