Dwele Plays on a Snow Day

Posted By on Wed, Jan 26, 2011 at 3:25 PM

But Dwele is not playing in the snow, he's playing inside of his home studio where the multi-talented musician and vocalist loops a bunch of instruments and turns them into a Fela-esque beat.

One thing I can say from my numerous chats with Dwele is that he can get down on drums, bass, guitar, piano, trumpet, the MPC, and a variety of other instruments -- most of which he taught himself how to play. For his last album, Sketches of a Man, he played all of the music himself. Check it out.
