Callaloo is the best world fusion steel pan group performing original compositions in Chicago. Scott Johnson, composer/arranger, began writing music for Callaloo that was built on strong, sophisticated Latin/Caribbean rhythms and recently began exploring and incorporating 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.
