Welcome to the Callaloo site!


NEW Callaloo Album Release Summer 2021!

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.
