ABOUT

Hi there, I love creating new music, playing and singing heart felt Latin American tunes, as well as many other creative musical explorations. I am giving all my time and energy these days to music practice, and I am in a very deep creative process exploring through some fusions of flamenco, folklor latino, ambient guitar looping and beginning to incorporate some bluesy and jazzy feels elements to the music and would love to find a couple of creative folks to collaborate with in song writing, finding a shared collective tone and a performing edge (some percussion, folk instruments and female vocals for harmonizing would be amazing).

I don´t have a lot of experience performing or recording for that matter, but I have tons of experience in creative group facilitation, arts processes, sound jams (from the improv and clowning world), and many other fun ways of bringing creative power into groups, I can facilitate a meaningful processes for creating.
