Acquaye is a self-taught pianist from five years old, with an interest in music composition, song - writing, performance and animation. Having won two music competitions he has performed his songs and piano pieces at various educational and community sites including Ealing Jazz Festival, Christchurch C of E Middle School, 2000, Acton Community Forum Talent Show, 2007, and Drayton Manor High School Leaving Assembly, 2010. In 2010, he learnt to play steel pan by his father, Dr Lionel McCalman (‘Nappy’), Leader of Nostalgia Steel Pan Band, and has soon become one of the band’s most talented ‘tenner’ players. So much so that he has performed at London 2012’s opening ceremony, and has recently returned from China, where as part of ‘Nostalgia’ which represented the UK, he performed at the Shanghai Tourism Festival 2013. He has also toured with the band for the ‘All American Festival’ in Strasbourg, local and international carnivals and festivals like the Notting Hill Carnival, 2010, 201, 2012 and 2013 and community WAPPY showcases. – He’s been volunteering with WAPPY on a seasonal basis since 2009, playing since 2010, supporting the organisation in various partner events including the Bob Marley 70th Birthday tribute in 2015 and Bob Dylan tribute in 2017. Young people are thoroughly inspired to play steel pan as he is a fantastic volunteer instructor and mentor
