Afro-Cuban House DJ, Musician and Producer.
Started Djing at 14, getting my first gig at 16. After finishing school I went straight into event management and am about to celebrate my companies Brown Sugah Music, 4th Birthday. Have been working on my upcoming project, "The Rum Dairy's" which will be released at the end of this summer.

I will be having multiple sessions online on Afro-Cuban percussion and arrangement. While I was visiting Cuba to do the recording for my EP. I had a lot of issues with translation as I don't speak Spanish, making it hard to understand what exact rumba beat there where playing. With this education I will be able to deceiver the intricate patterns and learn how to incorporate them into my music correctly.
