Influences

Many influences from my youth, my uncle Hector, he was a hand drummer tambor, bongos in Uruguay and introduced me playing hand drums at the age of 8, in my early teens ( 1974 and on) I got to playing kit drums to my influences as Grand Funk Railroad, James Brown, Tower of Power, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Marvin Hayes, Santana, Santa Maria, Earth Wind and Fire, Stephen Wolf, Fat Toe, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Many funk bands and The Disco Days, then about 1987 as I concentrated in my congas and percussion instruments Santana, Cuban All Stars, La Sonora, Tito Puetes, Hidalgo, Cuban and Pueto Rico music, King Sony Ade, and many more. About 2002 I got very interested in sitting back on the drums and R&B and Blues, Big Miller was one of my most cherish influence in blues, BB King, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimmy Hendricks, ZZ Top, and so many more.
Now I have my own style and I create as much as possible, I have experience and a world of musical knowledge, rhythms and love for music.
