Living amongst a family of musicians in New Orleans, D'Jalma began a musical legacy at the age of five, training first on the violin. By age 18, he become an accomplished guitar player and played with some of south Louisiana's most well-known bands and musicians, including the band Filé and Terrence Simien.

He received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette in Music Media and a Texas Folklife Resource Grant to study Creole fiddle with NHA Master Creole fiddler Canray Fontenot in 1993.
