Ashley Lucky, the leader and manager of Tropical Heat was born in Trinidad and fell in love with British Columbia because of its beauty and vibrant Caribbean community. For years Ashley experimented with different electronic instruments and is finally satisfied with the effect produced by combining the rich sounds of the steel drums with the keyboard. Tropical Heat music has now become more versatile with arrangements of any type of music around the steel drums.
