Bassline Live and Kaya FM 95.9 welcomes back international steelpan drumming sensation, Andy Narell.
Known as one of the most schooled musicians of the time, Narell has been working in the world of music since 1962, when he formed his first steelpan drum band with his brothers and friends in Queens, New York. As the invitations to perform grew more lucrative, so expanded Narell’s experience and by 1973 he
had graduated from the University Of California, Berkeley where he focused on piano and drums.
Narell instantly started his own record label and in 1979 he released his first solo album, Hidden Treasures. He went onto release a further six albums under his own label and the jazz label, Windham Hill, gaining himself the moniker “The Hammer”, along the way.
Venue: The Lyric, Gold Reef City Casino, Northern Pkwy and Data Cres, Ormonde 99-Ir, Johannesburg
