Emery Damon

Damon

Born and raised in the Green Mountains of Vermont, Emery is an accomplished ceremonial drummer with 20 years of extensive study in Afro-Cuban and Afro-Haitian forms. He first encountered Vodu music at a Haitian dance class, and since then has been in a lifelong love affair with the drum. He has traveled extensively in Cuba to deepen his musical understanding and how the art form can enrich our spirits and our connections to each other. He learned playing at the side of many inspiring teachers and mentors, including: Johnny Scovel, Damas “Fan Fan” Louis, Even “Zilibo” Seney, Jean-Marie Brignol. Felix Sanabria, Michel Sotolongo, and Lekiam Guerrerro. An integral member of the ceremonial music community in New York City, Emery studies and plays with various groups there.
