Season Four, Episode Five Dante Pope

Dante for WebsiteIf you have seen music around DC or around the country for that matter you have probably seen Dante Pope. A drummer/Percussionist, Dante has toured locally and nationally with such acts as Wes Felton, Raheem DeVaughn and Dom Flemons. Dante can play a mean bones.

Recently Dante has been selected to be an Artist in Residence at Strathmore where he will explore and expand his repertoire to include singing and songwriting. Dante stopped by The Yarden to show us some of that.
