Artist of the Day: Jarrengton de León

Jarrengton de León

A year ago I was in the Dominican Republic with Luis Conte for a clinic and had the opportunity to meet Jarrengton and his beautiful family for the first time. Luis and I and had a terrific time in the country. Jarrengton is a hard working musician and a great person. I remember listening to the radio in the car on our way to the clinic with him and he would say "oh that's me on that song" and the next song would start and he would repeat "well, that's me again". He is the most on demand percussionist in the country for studio sessions as well as live shows.

I must say that Jarrengton is a good example of a complete artist. He has the perfect mix of great people skills, great personality and talent. It's great to have artists like Jarrengton  as part of the MEINL team. 

Check Jarrentgon's profile to see three videos of him playing MEINL's Woodcraft Congas. In the videos he is doing solos as well as some styles on the congas.
