Resident Artist 

Inspired at a young age with the sounds of Afro Cuban Folkloric music. San Francisco based musician & artist Stan “Cachimbo” Corpus was mesmerized by the Chekere.

Stan learned the craft of making these specialized instruments from Master Cuban musician Guillermo Cespedes during his time studying Afro Cuban music at La Pena Culture Center in Berkley, California.

Throughout the years he further enhanced his craftwork by working with West Coast and East Coast Shekere makers, which have given him a wealth of guidance, knowledge, and insight to creating his own style of Chekeres.
