Arlo Shultis

I believe drumming is the catalyst for my creative voice.  The physicality of creating sound through gesture and rhythm is what drives me the most.  Much of my musical education was focused on orchestral percussion, a discipline I value very much, yet my passion lies in creating music with like-minded drumming acrobats.  These days I live in Baltimore where I am working on perfecting my skills as a traditional concert percussionist and chamber musician.  Being a part of Willo is a blessing that I don’t take for granted.  It is rare you find a group of musicians that are willing to explore your passion with you, and even more when these people are your best friends.
