Manu Delago

Composer, Percussionist


I studied at three different conservatoires in Europe and can genuinely say that Trinity Laban was my favourite place. The composition faculty was very open-minded and supportive. I was encouraged to be adventurous, to collaborate with other music departments as well as dancers and choreographers. And I got to meet a band member of Led Zeppelin.
