Kevin Jones

Kevin Jones is an exciting young percussionist that has performed all over the world. Originally from Englewood, NJ, Kevin has been playing professionally since the age of 13 when he worked for All Platinum Records (now Sugar Hill records) in his hometown of Englewood. There he cut percussion tracks for groups like the “Moments” and even toured with some of their recording artists while still in school. At the age of 16 he joined a professional African dance & drum ensemble under the direction of master drummer and dancer, Titos Sompas. It was here that Kevin learned many of the traditional Rhythms and Songs from the Congo. During this period he was also under the tutelage of percussionist Babatunde Lea and Coster Massamba.
