Joachim Cooder is a musician who leads a double life: he's a celebrated percussionist who has worked with a number of respected roots and world music artists, while he also records as a headliner, where his primary instrument is the electric mbira, a variation on the traditional African thumb piano.

As a sideman, his adaptable style has found him working with his father, Ry Cooder, on the legendary Cuban ensemble Buena Vista Social Club sessions, and inventive Indian instrumentalist Vishwa Mohan Bhatt. Joachim has also worked on his own with artists like Ali Farka Touré, who inspired Cooder to take up the mbira.

As a bandleader, his music is an atmospheric blend of folk, blues, and African music that encompasses familiar themes with an otherworldly instrumental texture.
