Bahia, Brazil native Nanny Assis is a hard talent to define. He started his career as a drummer and percussionist, but has developed into a brilliant multiform musician. Now a singer, song-writer and master percussionist, he has played with such artists as Vinicius Cantauria and John Patitucci, and adds his flavor to popular music, Brazilian Jazz, Afro-Brazilian and other folkloric sounds from his homeland. Assis has become one of the top percussionists in the Brazilian music industry, sought after by world-class musicians for both studio recordings and live performances.
