Wesley Gibbens

Wesley Gibbens moved to London from South Africa in 2005 and has played drums with the Darius Brubeck Quartet since its inception. Wesley’s South African roots earned him a place as drummer for UK based African musicians Netsayi, SA Gospel Singers, Lucky Ranku, Pinise Saul and Afla Sackey and he has gained an international profile in Jazz and African music through extensive touring and recording with these artists.

Wesley studied Brazilian and African music under Barak Schmool as part of the F-ire collective where he worked with bands including Rhythms of the City and The Irreverents specializing in rhythmic composition and form. Alongside the above-mentioned projects Wesley also tours internationally with acclaimed British New Orleans and Blues piano player TJ Johnson. Wesley is the drum teacher at The North London Music Academy.
