Guillermo E. Brown

He has Panamanian Caribbean influences from his father and African-American southern influences from his mother. He was nurtured “in music and rhythm,” and received his earliest drum lessons from his grandfather at age four.

As a musician (drums, electronics, voice), multidisciplinary performer (text, video, theatre) and producer, Brown is featured on over 25 recordings, performing or recording with David S. Ware, William Parker, Matthew Shipp, Dave Burrell, Anti-Pop Consortium, Anthony Braxton, DJ Spooky, Vernon Reid/DJ Logic's Yohimbe Brothers, Mike Ladd, George Lewis, and Vijay Iyer, among others. His albums include “Soul at the Hands of the Machine,” “The Beat Kids' Open Rhythm System,” “Black Dreams 1.0,” and “Handeheld.”
