Joe Sorbara Joe Sorbara

Joe Sorbara is a highly inventive drummer and percussionist with a penchant for coaxing music out of practically anything. Joe's drumkit is regularly augmented with found and prepared material that ensures that the sounds at his ready disposal are practically orchestral in scope. He combines these skills with an extraordinary time-feel that makes him one of the most swinging drummers in Canada when the music demands it of him. He leads Other Foot First, a 'seven-or-more-tet' that is the primary outlet for his inventive compositions. Elsewhere, Joe plays in the Remnants Trio, Ken Aldcroft's Convergence Ensemble, and the AIMToronto Orchestra as well as in numerous ongoing and ad hoc collaborations with other improvisers. Joe is also a stalwart creative music organizer, a founding Board member of AIMToronto, a member of the Somewhere There collective, and has been the director of the weekly Leftover Daylight Series since its inception in 2003.
