Bopa King Carré

Bopa King Carre is a deeply spiritual and intuitive creator with much more life experience than his age would imply. He is an extremely versatile and eclectic drummer, master percussionist, improviser, composer, arranger, actor, teacher and always a student. He is among the most explosive and energetic live performers anywhere. Bopa exhibits visionary musicality, deep listening, shocking improvisational talent, formidable technique, a strong sense of time, great stamina and immense stage presence. His constant exploration of the music and rhythms from his life-study, world travel, tremendous performance history, extensive dance club experience and endless inner space-born mystical channeling keep Bopa King Carre naturally sensitive to the dynamics and attitudes of almost any musical situation. His ability to anticipate other musician’s choices of notes, chords and rhythmic changes at any tempo, with no hints or cues, contribute to his mastery of accurately “playing the mix” with DJs. His uncanny ability to guess any DJ's next song selection is among the most obvious attributes setting Bopa King Carre apart from all other percussionists.
