I am a guitarist based in Brussels and born in 1987.
After many musical experiences in Belgium, Portugal and Brazil, I decided to frequent the Jazz Studio in Antwerp, Royal Conservatory of Brussels (master degree) and Berklee School of Music Summer programs. I mostly play latin jazz, swing, choro and acoustic music. After having spent a time in Rio I discovered the 7 string acoustic guitar and use it as my main instrument. Thanks to different collaborations with many artists, I have played in Belgium (Bozar, Music Village, Théâtre Molière,...), France (Studio l'Ermitage, Cabaret Sauvage, Festival de guitare de Sedan), Spain (Casa da América, Madrid), Portugal (Onda Jazz, CC Carnide), Poland (Globaltica Festival), Germany (Artliners, Café Tasso in Berlin) and Brazil (Sesc Ribeirão Preto, Sesc Bom retiro,...)
Here are some of my projects:
-Napraça : modern Choro (CD available here )
-Parceria: Brazilian music with Osman Martins (cavaquinho). CD available here
-Espelhos: Portuguese music with Thibault Dille, Ana Rocha, Miguel Rosal and Cristina Rosal. CD Available here
-Encontros d'Agua: Portuguese music produced by Swami Jr with Thibault Dille, Ana Rocha, Miguel Rosal and Cristina Rosal. CD Available here
-Participation to the recording of Vincent Penasse Jazz Quartet "Rosa dos Ventos"
