Asha “BOOMCLAK” Santee is a world traveling, percussion kahuna with a propensity for infectious beats and the inevitable body roll. Following in the footsteps of her father, who played the drums for their local church, Asha started playing at the age of 6. The entrepreneurial bug bit her early and at 14 she was teaching drums to kids in her neighborhood.
BOOMCLAK’s signature sticks and production are responsible for the backbone of many of the DMV’s unique sounds including The Peace & Body Roll Duo BOOMscat, The CooLots, Grammy Nominee Carolyn Malachi, and Grammy Award Winning, Mya. Asha’s gifts are not limited to the stage as she has scored award winning Blackstar Film Festival projects including Tender and Abundance, directed by Felicia Pride and Kym Allen respectively.
Her affiliate program Bangin’ with BOOMCLAK offers affordable private and group drum lessons to kids and adults of all ages and provides a beat making program to black girls battling depression. Asha currently has three solo projects on all streaming platforms including her latest release, GINKGO.
