I've toured the UK & Abroad extensively so LIVE performance is my forte. I currently play for several bands on the LIVE circuit, my favourite being Orquesta Bombo, a 30 piece Cuban Orchestra performing Cuban Carnival music. I have many years experience playing in all sorts of environments, from performing solo @ weddings to 8000 people within an African troupe. I'm a great believer in the therapeutic benefits of percussion and play regularly within Drum Circles along side Master African Drummers.
Whether your looking to develop some basic techniques and rhythms or hone your skills as a performer I always enjoy sharing the wonderful art of Drumming & Percussion with anyone at whatever level.
