Ras Perez - Dominican Reggae and DubFrom the nature island of the Caribbean, Ras Perez became involved in music at a very early age. Influenced mainly by what was being played over the radio at that time, it soon became clear that music was a universal language that he had to also learn. He started out by playing melodica together with his elder sister singing, and younger brother beating away at anything to have as "drums". They soon were able to play almost everything that was heard over the radio, which was at the time coming all the way from Trinidad. Throughout his teens, "Perri" caught the eyes of the local bandsmen and was invited to join the "Ebonites" band from Grand Bay. It was ranked as one of the top outfits coming out of Dominica at that time. They had a reputation for discipline, and were known to be able to read and write music, and not just "play by ear". Starting out on bass, he then moved to learn keyboards to replace an outgoing member. From then on it was a smooth transition to guitar and other instruments.
