The Uncle Devin Show®
is an interactive, musical experience for children by renowned drummer and percussionist, Devin Walker
. The show cultivates the minds of children through percussion instruments and is a dynamic cross between D.C.'s Trouble Funk and Schoolhouse Rock! Walker is also a Teaching Artist with Wolf Trap’s Institute for Early Learning Through the Arts.
Walker’s children's book, The ABC's of Percussion with Music CD
, was named a 2015 National Parenting Publication Awards Bronze winner and his Uncle Devin’s Drum Tales CD won a 2013 Parents’ Choice Presentation Award. Uncle Devin’s latest release, Be Yourself!
(2018), takes a different approach to children’s music, using funky drum and percussion grooves as the foundation to teach children about the importance of individuality.
He is also the creator of the first 24/7 online music radio program for children called, Watoto Entertainment & Education
or WEE Nation Radio
, providing global beats for little feet! This past April, Uncle Devin debuted the companion WEE Nation Radio
show on WPFW 89.3 weekly on Wednesdays from 7-8 PM.
