Brian Rice (hand percussion)

Brian has been blowing WTD fan’s minds with his signature hybrid drum kit and tambourine playing since 2000.  When not performing with WTD, Brian teaches jazz and world drumming to kids and adults in Oakland and performs in contexts as varied as with Mike Marshall’s Choro Famoso ensemble, the Mexican band, Cascada de Flores and the touring company of The Lion King. Brian teaches the Brazilian and Cuban ensembles at UC Davis.  Visit his website at
