“Rhythm is a language shared by the mind and soul. Groove is the fundamental current through which the spirit flows… the communication of your pulse within the feel of life. It gives rhythm life. It is the basic foundation which must be present for music to exist. It can’t be seen… it can’t be explained… it can only be heard and only truly understood if first it is felt.”
I got my first drum set at the age of 12
Jimmy Mouton (drums) started playing drums at 12 years old and has been touring since the age of 16. Born and raised in the heart of the bayou country, he was molded by the sights and sounds of the great South-Louisiana culture, witness to a talent-rich environment that has produced genre-defining artists like Sonny Landreth, Allen Toussaint, Michael Doucet & BeauSoleil, and Buckwheat Zydeco. Combined with the influence of the Jazz, Second-line and Funk sounds of Creole New Orleans that produced the Meters, Neville Brothers, Dr. John and Professor Longhair, Mouton developed a unique style and approach that would thrust him into the music scene as one of the most versatile and in-demand drummers available.
