Welcome to the Callaloo site!
Check out our most recent appearance on WGN tv!
Callaloo is Chicago's premier world fusion steel pan group performing original compositions. Scott Johnson, composer/arranger, writes music for Callaloo that is built on Latin/Caribbean rhythms but also incorporates other styles, that, when fused, have proven to deliver a powerful musical experience.
The percussion based group employs an amalgam of instruments – steelpans, marimba, ethnic percussion, drum set, nylon string guitar, bass – while combining composed, orchestrated parts with improvisation. The percussionists switch instruments from song to song adding to the visual element of their performance.
