About the Founder -

The L.A. Caribbean Ensemble™ is the creation of Los Angeles based musician and producer, Jason Lee Bruns (pictured left). Jason was first introduced to the intriguing sound of the steel drum as a member of the Miami University Steel Band under the direction of Dr. Chris Tanner. Soon after, he founded his own group with the versatility of the steel drum in mind. Now, more than a decade later, with a Master’s degree from the University of Southern California, continued studies in Trinidad, Cuba, and Brazil, and as the founder & director of the World Music Program at Campbell Hall, Jason reinvents this band with a heightened vision and an all-star cast!
