Alex Rossi was born in 1974 in Blumenau, South of Brazil. He met the Harmonica in his childhood when passing the only harmonica factory of the Three Americas on his way to school and on the road which he followed to visit his grandmother. He often visited the factory to observe the birth of instruments ... but no one seemed to be able to play it. So the young Alexandre had to wait untill he was 13 years old to put the lips on the cold metal of his very first harmonica.The young musician developed his own technique by profiting by his basic musical knowledge he has from the practice of saxophone and percussion, technical information given at the factory and by his musical experiments. From amateur bands to Jazz festivals (he shares the stage, with great musicians), Alex deepened his knowledge of musicality. At the age of 18, he played in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and at the age of 21, he played in Dallas, Texas, USA. This has been the starting point for Alex to become an accomplished professional musician.
that time, the young man played with great names of the Blues circuit, for example Hash Brown, Smokin'Joe Kubeck, Holland K. Smith, Tutu Jones, Lucky Peterson, Texas Slim, and the legendaries Sam Meyers, Robert Ealey (Alex toured with him in Texas and Oklahoma), Curly "Barefoot" Miller and Magic Slim. He shared the stage of the Tulsas's Blues Festival with Buddy
