Mombo began hand drumming in the early 70's. Studying, learning, and listening to other percussionists, Mombo arrived with his own style. Playing all styles of music, he kept being drawn to contemporary jazz. Finally hooking up with vocalist, Slim Man, in the 90's, broke Mombo into the Jazz scene. Affording him the opportunity to perform with Peter White, Steve Oliver, Lou Rawls, Roger Smith, Michael Paulo, Freddie Ravel, Marc Antoine, Greg Vail, Tony Windle, and the list goes on! Mombo has been focusing on hands-on percussion demos in schools and drum circles for Veterans and their families. It is very important for him to keep the magic alive by sharing his passion for world percussion and sound effect instruments. Helping kids with self esteem and always letting them know never to give up on their dreams. Drumming with Veterans, "talking to each other with their hands", produces feelings of well-being, relaxation and reduces stress.
