"Growing up, I wanted to be Airto, Ralph McDonald, Big Black, Tito Puente, Bootsy, Olatunji and Tony Williams. When I wasn't in school, I would be in my room, playing along to the radio. After I learned the parts of my radio mentors, I created my own parts and patterns. As long as I'm playing, I am learning. I've grown up, yet I haven't changed. I will always be a student. I will always be inspired by incredible percussionists, by my roots in Africa, by the world around me."Bashiri Johnson continues to dwell in that elite group of NYC's first call musicians. Managers, producers, engineers, record labels, dj's, artists, and musicians the world over call upon Bash for his percussive sounds, grooves, ideas, compositions, creativity, and expertise. Bashiri has expanded his musical galaxy with his products (Wholeness Well Being Formula® : a whole foods dietary supplement, and Rhythm Healing™ product line), his Record/Media label(Life In Rhythm Media), Productions, and Songwriting. Bashiri hosts a Percussion Intensive Seminar at his recording studio(The Lab-Brooklyn) for percussionists of all levels, and holds children's workshops, lectures and clinics to give back to the community and inspire young people.
