“...a velvet voice with 6 magic mallets...”

“Shinar is in a Class All By Himself...

..his expressive voice and the “liquid” sound resulting from using six mallets
takes steel drum music to the next level.”

SIX Mallets Instead of Two!

Most steel drummers play with only 2 mallets, but Shinar is the only known performer in the world that simultaneously sings and accompanies himself on steel drums using, not two, but SIX mallets...hence creating his signature “liquid” steel harmonic vibrations!
