Zahra Lake was born in Antigua and Barbuda in 1991. She began playing the steel pan at the age
of 12 and by age 17 she began teaching music theory and steel pan classes at the Le Chateau
D’or Music Academy's Annual Summer Camp. Her love for the art form and experiences with
people involved in playing the steel pan, has guided her to become the
educator/performer/arranger that she is today.
In 2017 Zahra Lake became the first female
arranger for Antigua’s National Panorama, and made history when she became the
country’s first female champion arranger in 2018. She holds a bachelor's degree in music performance
and is currently pursuing a Masters of Music Degree at the Northern Illinois University.
