My Story

Hey there my name is Derek Kwabena Simpey and I’m a professional Steeldrum Performer. I was born in Amsterdam Southeast. At the young age of 8 I encountered this beautiful instrument at my old primary school during a christmas event. Seeing and hearing them play made me fall in love with the sound already! I got invited to their practice and ever since I’ve never stopped playing this unique instrument..
