I started playing drum kit and marching snare as a child, in my adolescence I took up djembe, darbouka and cajon. Most recently I have started learning tabla. I have over 20 years of experience in drumming and performing live. Achieved qualifications in music technology. Have gigged extensively playing traditional Celtic music and Moroccan Gnawa music

Jarvis played Darbuka and djembe to accompany my performances at many weddings and celebrations very well, he has good energy and good heart.
