Congratulations to Mr Lenny Kumar on receiving the Hummingbird Medal Gold for his efforts in building the industry around tassa drumming, both locally and abroad.

A tassa music virtuoso and leader of the NGC Trinidad and Tobago Sweet Tassa group, Lenny’s passion for the art form has fueled many innovations, such as new drumming styles. His vision also led to the creation of the pioneering NGC Trinidad and Tobago Sweet Tassa Academy, which has been instructing students of the art form locally, and at universities and high schools in the USA, Canada, Europe and across the Caribbean.

Lenny, congratulations on this momentous achievement. We are proud to be a part of your mission to bring our music to the world’s stage.
