Hailed by The New York Times for his “dazzling improvisations” and his “wizardry on a range of humble frame drums,” Yousif Sheronick enjoys an active career as percussionist, composer, producer, and educator. Having studied classical percussion through a master’s degree at Yale, Sheronick went on to study music from Brazil, India, Africa, and the Middle East, which he seamlessly incorporates into his playing. His unique skills in both world and classical music have led him to perform with a diverse range of ensembles and musicians including Philip Glass, Yo-Yo Ma, Laurie Anderson, Ethos Percussion Group, Lark Quartet, Silk Road Ensemble, Branford Marsalis, Sonny Fortune, Cindy Blackman Santana, Glen Velez, and Paul Winter. His many musical influences are highlighted in duoJalal, his venture with his wife, violist Kathryn Lockwood. A feature article in Drum! Magazine highlighted Sheronick’s versatility in an article titled “At The Corner Of The World.”
