Bio

Hailing from the little island of Barbados, Ishmael grew up listening to and playing calypso, soca, rock steady, reggae, rock, soul, gospel and a little jazz. On migrating to Philadelphia in the late 70s, was introduced to and played with the late great Sun Ra and the Intergalactic Arkestra, who indoctrinated the young drummer with the big band jazz format. Soon after a reggae band formed itself called Blacksheep with Ishmael on drums, later Killer Bess from Austin, Texas. Currently Peacemakers which is a project featuring songs written by Ishmael.
