I am a harmonica player, arranger and a Latin Grammy Nominee songwriter and composer. If you are looking for a harmonica line, a string or brass arrangement or even a help to finish your compositions, here is the place to solve your answers and end the quest.
I am a very experienced harmonica player, arranger, songwriter and composer.
As an instrumentist I have been on stage and recorded with some important artists from Brazil such as Elza Soares, Criolo, Maria Gadu, Rashid, with Aláfia and with my trio Timeline Trio.
In my arrangements I explore different soundings on brass ensembles, sometimes including the harmonica too, sometimes only traditional instruments. I wirte for strings too.
As a composer I write songs ( lyrics and melodies ) for singers, artists and soundtracks for movies (watch the awarded Transpatagonia movie on netlfix and Baoba Flowers ) dance plays ( Gaya in Canada ) and ambiences such as art installations.
