Concert and recording artist, arranger, and producer Annette A. Aguilar is a versatile percussionist and composer. Born in San Francisco, CA, the daughter of Nicaraguan immigrants, Annette A Aguilar began playing music at the age of 11. Growing up in S.F.’s Noe Valley and Mission District where she listened to boleros and tangos on the radio as well as Jimi Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane and The Grateful Dead (with whom she would one day perform) and where Santana developed the “West Coast Latin Beat”, it was no surprise that she soon gravitated towards drumming.(Source)
