Steven Brezet “World Traveler”
release date: april 2022
Steven Brezet is a Dutch-born multi-percussionist and composer.
At a very young age, Steven took djembe lessons with Senegalese percussionist Aly Ndiaye Rose and soon began expanding to other percussive instruments, including sabar, congas, bongos, timbales, and others. His travels to Senegal, Guinea, Curacao, Morocco, Cuba, and Brazil broadened Steven’s musical passion for African, Brazilian, and Afro-Latin Music.
Steven’s research and talent has brought him amongst the vanguard of young up-and-coming percussionists, and can be heard on Multi-Grammy award winner Snarky Puppy’s release “We Like it Here”.
For his upcoming Circle 9 release, World Traveler, Steven has teamed up with several world-famous artists to record an original suite of eight compositions and arrangements of Puerto Rican, Nuyorican and Venezuelan salsa. The forthcoming project includes vocalist Marcial Isturiz, percussionists Pedrito Martinez, Luisito Quintero, “Little” Johnny Rivero and Nate Werth. The album is produced by Venezuelan composer, arranger, and trumpeter Oscar Cordero.
Steven endorses instruments by Gon Bops, Contemporanea, Zildjian, Afriek, Soul Dila and Innovative Percussion.
