Larry is a Juno-nominated multi-percussionist, drummer and composer. He has dedicated himself to innovation, exploring rhythm-based performance traditions from around the world through study, creation, and teaching. After studying performance and composition at the Berklee College of Music, he was charmed by the deep sounds and wondrous poly-rhythms of West Africa. In 2011, Larry returned to Ghana to inform his creative process with help from a Chalmers Foundation research grant awarded to him by the Ontario Arts Council. Larry currently presents workshops and performances with his ensemble, DRUMHAND, teaches drum set and percussion at York University, and creates music for various contemporary dance organizations in Toronto.
