Hi, name is Abu. I am a Melbourne Australia based
conga player with many years experience in latin, reggae, funk and middle
eastern. My specialty is probably more funk and reggae than anything else,
but my background is in traditional latin and afro Cuban styles.
I do a lot of sitting in or spontaneous playing with a few bands just
for the fun of it. I used to be full time playing in all the clubs, but
now have my own business so can't commit to this.
I like to jam with good players where there is a good crowd and a few
beers floating around. When available, I am open to recordings, gigs and
jams sessions. It has to be fun, no drama queens or precious little rock
This is my criteria for a gig:
- good crowd
- fun people
- good players
- good venue
If you can say yes to all of these, and I am available, I am interested
