BIO

Jordan is a versatile Edinburgh based percussionist, musical director and workshop facilitator. His deep love of carnival and world music has taken him around the UK, Europe teaching and performing as well as to Brazil to study the music and culture multiple times.
 

Since 2009 Jordan has been studying and practising Afro-Brazilian song and percussion and has found lots of ways to incorporate those rhythms and instruments into other musical contexts - as well as using them as a vehicle for social good in community groups.
