Born Weber Ribeiro Drummond in Rio de Janeiro , Brazil on February 17th1962. It wasn’t until mid 90’s that Weber adopted the stage name Weber Iago as a homage to the Roma People, also known as Gypsies.
In Brazil, Iago spent years developing his craft as a concert pianist as well as a composer, writing mostly piano and chamber music works.
In the early 80’s he began developing a strong interest in Jazz which prompted his move to the U.S., more precisely Los Angeles, in 1987.
Once in the U.S. Iago began working with notable musicians such as Moacir Santos, one of Brazil’s greatest composer and arranger.
Weber Iago has released several cd’s over the years, like “Children of the Wind” with Adventure Music and “Spring Will Stay Here” with Mogno Music.
Iago has recorded and performed with great Jazz luminaries such as Paul McCandless, Ali Ryerson, Kenny Stahl, Claudia Villela , Charles Loos, Marcia Maria, Alex Acuna and Alphonso Johnson.
