Baba Donn Babatunde

American

For almost a quarter century, Baba Don Babatunde, a percussionist very much in demand, has performed with many major American dance companies in the world’s greatest performing-arts venues. His recording career is as equally varied as it vast; the jazz idiom, rhythm and blues, and most African derived percussion styles are represented in his discography. He is one of New York City’s master teachers of African Drumming and the rhythms of the Diaspora in the Americas. He is presently on faculty at the Harlem School of the Arts for over 25 years, teaching all ages.
