Custom Rhythmic ideas to enhance your music
Greetings, I would be honored to be a part of your music.
I can add spicy rhythmic parts designed specifically for you to your tracks.
Music changes with different layers. For example, an exotic Batá Rhythm (Cuban-Nigerian percussion instrument) or just an interesting shaker track.
I record Drums, Congas, Batá Drums and miscellaneous percussion.

Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started drum lessons at 13 years old. I took my career very seriously at 19, when I traveled to Cuba to learn music and percussion, it was quite an experience. I wouldn't consider myself a Latin drummer, but rather someone who can add a little Latin joy. When I returned to Colombia, I started working in a Studio called "La Zona", there I worked programming Drums and Percussion with 2 projects, "Jorge Rio" and "Zianne". Then I worked on several local projects (none of them known), a few years later I worked with producer Sergio Giraldo on some of his projects, Naquí (Percussion), La Travesía del Alma (Drums) and Surmarides (Drums). Now I am working on my own project, which is connected to the harsh reality of my country. I have been working in music and education for over 20 years
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I would say that my approach is respectful with music, but I can also bring the good vibes of the Latin flavor.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Beth Hart, I love the way she uses Blues as a starting point, but then it can be anything, unpredictable.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Always be prepared!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I have been working with World Music, Rock and Pop. I try to give a distinctive touch to a song
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: The obsession for a good job
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: With drums and percussion you can provide support, contrast or madness, it all depends on the original idea. Traditional or out-of-the-box thinking that I can provide.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: First thing's first. I have to know the artist's vision and be respectful of it. So, after having a clear idea of what the client wants, I start working on some proposals for the client to approve. If the reference track was recorded with a click, it is better. Once approved the tracks are sent.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a computer, an Audio Interface, and Shure and AKG Microphones.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I respect anyone who has a devotion to their craft. Dedication
