I’ve always heard the beat inside of me.
Now I know that the rhythm is a part of me because it is the universe as a whole to be composed of rhythm. And so we, as a part of it.
My percussion research has always accompanied the research of my personal growth, and it, like this, is made up of direct experiences and practice, rather than study. It will never end.
My teachers are: David Conte for the music of Salento, Fredy “el pulpo” Fernandez, in la Habama, for the Afro-Cuban culture, Jesus Alberto Fernandez, in Buenos Aires, for singing and vocal expression.
I have participated in several shows in different roles: musician, dancer, actor, clown, entertainer, wader, juggler. My most important experience is the one with the Argentine Murga (a culture of carnival in Buenos Aires which gathers people from the neighborhoods of the city in a colored show of rhythm, dance, songs and social criticism). In particular, I am honored to be the founder and the artistic director of Murga Patas Arriba, a musical-theatrical company with which we animated the streets of dozens of cities in Italy and Europe.
Writing, arranging and conducting a battery of drums give me the most satisfaction and make the people smile.
I have been working with: Murga Patas Arriba, Senzaterra, Le tre meno un quarto, Abraxa Theatre, Rome Precharija Orkestar, Compagnia Divano Occidentale Orientale, Melacanto y Melasòn, Compagnia Delle Palline.
Since I bought my first tammorra, I have gained experience in the traditions of Italian, Argentine, Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, Balkans, Uruguayan, Colombian, Arab folk music.
I like to do many different things and I’m trying to fill my life with things that I like, trying to feel good with myself and the people I meet during my life.
