Accomplished drummer, percussionist, composer and educator, Randolf Jimenez, was born in Caracas, Venezuela. He first fell in love with drums at the age of 4 when his parents gave him a toy drum set as a Christmas present. He later began practicing drums on his own and by the age of 16, was already playing professionally in the Venezuelan music scene. Randolf is a sound innovator with a passion for pushing creative boundaries. He is the kind of drummer who knows how to rock, vibe, swing, or relax into a minimalistic drum part when required. As a band leader, he has produced Randolf Jimenez: Latin Jazz Project and the rock fusion album, MalosAires Trio which was recorded in Buenos Aires. His recordings are distributed on all digital platforms. His work has been featured on websites, newspapers and magazines in Venezuela, Europe, Japan, and Canada including Billboard Magazine, All About Jazz, Malta Core, Drum Fills Kafe, Acid Conga, Tokyo Jazz Review, Latinos Magazine, Ultimas Noticias, A UNO Magazine, CARAS Magazine and many others. Billboard Magazine named him "one of today's greatest Latin American drummers." He has also appeared on several TV shows in Venezuela, NET TV (Europe), Rogers TV Univision Canada and Univision Miami. Randolf's style, impeccable timing and solid technique have not only earned him the respect of his fellow musicians, but also the title "The Groove" in the Venezuelan music community. Since moving to Canada, Randolf has risen to the top of the Toronto music scene. His musicianship, versatility and professionalism keep him very busy with a wide variety of bands and Grammy Award-winning musicians and has rapidly become the most sought-after Latin drummer in Toronto.
