Afro-Latin Band: Different Drum is a versatile Afro-Latin band that plays World Music, specializing in South African Township, Andean Melodies, Brazilian Sambas, Salsa, Calypso and Cumbia. Typically, Different Drum devotes equal time during their performances to jazz, eclectic music and original songs.

The band is led by Alex Weiss , a composer, multi-instrumentalist and director for Different Drum. He plays the congas, alto recorder, coronet, flugelhorn and other instruments and is accompanied on the congas by his Wife Li-Lan who also plays other percussion instruments. The duo often plays in festivals, libraries and cafes.

For the complete sound of an Afro-Latin band, the group can be expanded to include addtional instruments as required: Bass, Tenor Saxophone, Drums, Alto Saxophone, and other instruments.

“Alex Weiss & Different Drum’s unique sound of warm rhythms, airy melodies and tight arrangements retain the power of timeless communication. A journey of exceptional sound exploration and virtuosity…endlessly distinctive!” – Bill Meeham of Songwriter

“Different Drum has become a regular in the town’s (Carrboro, NC) “Entertainment Adventures” familiy series over the years. He’s a favorite with us and the community. Alex is a multi-talented musician. He does a great family show!” – The Chapel Hill Herald

“A lush, invigorating romp of music and poetry. Percussion, flutes, voices, guitars, horns, ambient forest sounds, satire, seriousness, playfulness: “Songs of Hope and Protest” explodes with Alex’ sharp wit and musicality. Prepare to be soothed, agitated, and entertained.” – Bob Slentz-Kesler of Author

“Alex Weiss and Different Drum present their view of world music and jazz in a unique manner… On “May Dayze” the klezmer-like horns are supported by the congas which truly mixes cultural boundaries. “–Cameron Blades of World Rhythm Webzine

“The combination of brass, winds, guitar, and percussion creates a “large-small ensemble” feel to these compositions…the music also has an infectious warmth.” – Cliff Bellamy of The Herald Sun
