Vitor Cabral on SoundBetter

Latin Grammy Award winner, one of the most important, expressive and eclectic Brazilian session drummer/percussionist, over 20 years of experience in recording and producing with artists such as Gal Costa, Ed Motta, Banda Black Rio, Filó Machado, João Bosco, Céu, Criolo, among others.

Hello, I'm Vitor Cabral.
I've been working as a professional drummer, percussionist, and producer in São Paulo, Brazil for over 20 years. I have had my own studio for the last 8 years where I have been able to do even more productions and record ‘rhythm section arrangements’ for artists, original soundtracks for advertising, movies, and so on.

I have an array of drums (vintage and modern), percussions (Brazilian, Cuban and African), and electronic gear to offer the best grooves, textures, and ‘rhythm section arrangements’ for your music, including pro audio hardware like Neve, Drawmer, Amek, Universal Áudio, Rme, Van den Hul cables, Earthworks, Neumann and Akg mics, etc...
I'll deliver 3 options (takes) and 1 recall, so you can get exactly what you need.
I love playing every kind of music and this is why I have been working with the most different genres and setups in several projects for well-known artists or companies like Netflix, Globo, Record, McDonald’s, Mitsubishi, Havaianas, Cachaça 51... and working with big industry players such as Russell Elevado (D'Angelo, Roy Hargrove), Paul Ralphes (Inner Circle, Bliss), etc.
