In the late '70s he joined a band (Split Times) and released a handful of albums. Eventually, Ahmad went on to become a resident drummer for Roslan Aziz Productions, and -- notably -- a session drummer and live drummer for Sheila Majid. With Majid, Ahmad would be able to bring his talents to a worldwide audience, touring in such nations as Japan, Indonesia, and Singapore.

Percussionist Steve Thornton is based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Before moving to Malaysia in 1997, Thornton lived and worked in New York. In the course of his formidable recording career he has worked and recorded with saxophonist Sadao Watanbe, and continues this gig today. Thornton has also worked with and appeared on albums by Herbie Hancock, Mongo Santamaria, jazz legend Miles Davis, and pianist McCoy Tyner, as well as Tracy Chapman, Mariah Carey, and Michael Jackson. His playing is particularly well displayed on albums by jazz vocalist Tania Maria and by romantic crooner Jon Lucien. Most recently, Thornton released an album under his own name (“Nature’s Plan”), and appeared on a CD with Keiko Lee, a jazz vocalist popular in Japan.
