About

Bassist, Percussionist, Singer and Composer

Artist and Bandleader

Percussionist, bassist and singer-songwriter Dawn Drake leads her Global South ensemble ZapOte, which breaks down cultural barriers by incorporating everything from Afro-Cuban jazz to hip-hop to samba into a soul-shaking mix. Deep bass grooves and swinging horn lines provide a danceable backdrop for Drake’s socially conscious lyrics, which impart messages of universal consciousness, empowerment, and compassion.
