Born into a musical family, London-based drummer & percussionist Yussef Dayes bases his style on West-African drumming but offers a wide-range of technicality which has stunned many. From jazz, bossa nova to grime as well as jungle, his influence draws from a wide range of genres that only makes his playing more unique. With his debut album "Black Focus" in 2016 making waves in the UK, he has set a standard alongside other up-coming musicians of a new jazz generation; self-taught, improv-based and fast-paced.
