Yousif Sheronick

Hailed by the New York Times for his “dazzling improvisations” and his “wizardry on a range of humble frame drums,” Yousif Sheronick enjoys an active career as a percussionist, composer, producer, and educator.  Having studied classical percussion through a Master’s degree at Yale, Yousif went on to study music from Brazil, India, Africa, and the Middle East, which he seamlessly incorporates into his playing. Yousif’s unique skills in both World and Classical music have led him to perform with a diverse range of ensembles and musicians, including Philip Glass, Yo-Yo Ma, Laurie Anderson, Ethos Percussion Group, Lark Quartet, Silk Road Ensemble, Branford Marsalis, Sonny Fortune,  Glen Velez and Paul Winter.

All attendees will receive a complimentary license to download the Ekwe music app.
