TreeHouse Studioz
Charlottesville, Virginia
Darrell Rose’s lifetime of study under the tutelage of world renowned masters such as Mor Thiam and Abdou Kunta, both of Senegal, and Babatunde Olatunji of Nigeria, eventually led to Darrell joining Bob Marley’s iconic reggae group, “The Wailers.” Throughout his years as a master percussionist, Darrell has touched several continents with his rhythmic stylings. His work on behalf of the U.S. State Department is critically acclaimed in several West African countries, including Guinea and Sierra Leone. Some of his fondest memories are of the times that he has spent playing alongside some of the greatest musicians of our time. Artists like Taj Mahal, Dave Matthews, John Lee Hooker and Odetta have influenced Darrell along the way, but Darrell’s roots are embedded deep in the soul and soil of cities like Nashville and New Orleans. A master percussionist and a truly gifted and seasoned artist, Darrell Rose is the consummate musician.
