Callaloo is the best world fusion steel pan group performing original compositions in Chicago. Scott Johnson, composer/arranger, began writing music for Callaloo that was built on strong, sophisticated Latin/Caribbean rhythms and recently began exploring and incorporating other styles, that, when fused, have proven to deliver a powerful musical experience.

The percussion based group employs an amalgam of instruments – steel pan, marimba, ethnic percussion, drum set, nylon string guitar, electric and acoustic bass – while combining composed, orchestrated parts with improvisation. The percussionists switch instruments from song to song adding to the visual element of their performance.

Callaloo has endeavored to elevate the steel pan from its novelty status by using it as the primary melodic voice in a variety of settings. In dedicating themselves to achieving the highest standards of composing, performance, improvising, and recording, Callaloo has chosen to label themselves as artistic, inspirational entertainment.

Callaloo is a wonderful talent and a great addition to any event. He was very professional and is an excellent musician. We booked him for our block party and the neighbors loved it. He had an excellent repertoire of music and encouraged requests. We will definitely book him for future events.
