How did it all begin? I have always loved tropical music, beaches, and the tropical lifestyle. After playing many different kinds of percussion instruments, I decided to combine my love for the "Tropical Life" with my love of percussion and of music, and so I came up with the idea to study the Steelpan. And the rest is now history!
