Arif is a versatile and much sought-after multi-percussionist. Over the last 15 years, Arif has been turning heads on the local music scene with his infectious percussive sound and flair. Arif has always had a colourful and diverse musical imagination. His musical roots lie firmly in heavy reggae bass drops, phat ‘70s funk beats, and smooth R&B. His heritage revels in the colour and magic of Bollywood and in the trance-inducing rhythms of Sufi Qawwali music.
That is what Arif continually strives for! With an explosive and visually commanding artillery of Latin percussion instruments and a great feel for the musical moment, Arif loves to work the crowd, mix with the energy and milk the dancefloor with irresistible rhythms.
