Rumour has it that he was born with his Congas. He's a very talented percussionist, his great experiences with many International artists allowed him to improve his technique a lot as well as his experiences with many gypsy artists which allowed him to absorb their resonance and to create a special unique atmosphere during its improvisations.

Our Project is ambitious because at the same time to face two targets
The First , give to the Latin Jazz Style an Italian colour , making its sonorities more easy to understand and giving to it an harmonious and catchy form, emphasizing its expressions with characteristics and sonorities from our country, without to renounce to its improvisations and movements that are the main characteristic of Latin Jazz Style.
The second , bring near more people to the Latin Jazz Style and to bring near also the people that don’t know this great Style but they are attracted from our more easily musical forms .
