From his Honduran father, he absorbed South American music. Through his German mother, he discovered the great composers whose harmonic spirit he kept. A new culture, a new folklore. Our folklore. Electric in a totally instrumental acoustic ensemble, his guitar has worked to draw strong and expressive themes that would guide piano and brass on the route to follow. A path that, under the effect of nervous rhythms, led the six strings across the Mediterranean, to meet an oud playing his oriental melodies, bewitching and mysterious. Oud became jazz as much as jazz became oriental. In the middle of traditional South American music and melancholic pop-rock, an additional piece in this unique artistic landscape.
