William Ruiz – Taino percussionist!!

Text by Sohrab Saadat Ladjevardi

Since this morning this gentleman – William Ruiz – has been following me on Twitter. I searched him in the internet and found out that he is a very talented percussionist. He’s playing the 12 tongue modern log drum and  a tribal drum set along with various percussion instruments in the NY subway and on the streets of NY. He’s an off/on stage musician creating great percussion sounds and rhythms.

Hope to see him soon in the subway and play with him. Enjoy the videos!
