Simon Crockett plays the 'Requinto guitar' and an old-school Peruvian classic guitar that was given to him by his father. Schooled in music on piano & vocals from the age of 6 Simon's first guitar was Peruvian it's sweet sound meant it was played daily. Simon spent 20 years working as a stone mason picking up the trade alongside Catalan stone masons, one of whom taught him many old Spanish, Catalan and Cuban tunes.
Connor Madden: After being taught a few Pink Floyd chords by his father Connor was hooked and music became his passion. Originally a heavy metal devotee and hoarder of instruments his collection includes: didgeridoo, piano, mandolin, banjo, harmonica and flute, all of which he can play to some degree. His devotion switched to Flamenco and Rumba once he had met, and teamed-up with, Simon back in 2013.
Wally (Christian Walden) was brought up in a musical family his mother played piano and sang soprano. As children he and his sister were given the choice to learn any instrument or instruments that took their fancy. Wally chose the drums and in 1988 his dying grandfather bought him a set for Christmas just before he died.
Ben Crockett grew up with the sound of his father's guitar never far away. It was only natural that he should become part of the act; performing on a very special Cajon, the soft skinned Bolivian bomba drum and the darbuka.
Dan Thornhill or Jerry Warren play bass guitar for the quintet each contributing their own rhythmic poetry to Ikarumba's music.
