Zenji Ingham — aka Zenji San — is the son of world renowned karate instructor Frederick [Skipper] Ingham and member of the Okinawa Goju-Ryu Karate Do Kyokai.
His introduction to music began at an early age with clarinet, saxophone and piano and he played in his highschool band. He was in various solo and group performances playing saxophone during this time, performing for the Premier of Bermuda and for the Jackson School of Performing Arts annual recitals.

After returning home from college he pursued his musical interests on a solo level recording songs and performing at events, including opening for the all-female reggae sound system Hemo & MooFire and reggae dancehall queen Junko from Japan.
