Thank you very much for visiting this page!
After having been involved in many different projects for the past years, working frequently as a sideman and collaborating with wonderful musicians, I am very happy to share this new project with you: an album with a set of original songs of mine that I really feel that represents my music and my voice!
We have been working very hard for this project with Juan Andrés Ospina, an amazing musician from Colombia who has been in charge of arranging all the music, playing the piano and producing the album. This past July we did two recording sessions in New York with a group of incredible musicians, and the material we have is really beautiful! This team I am having the pleasure to work with is adding a whole new and magical world to my music, and I am very happy to see where it is going!
Still there is a lot to be done before we can release the CD: mixing, mastering, the CD’s artwork, printing copies, etc. At this stage your help will be truly precious! On the right side of this page you can find a lot of exclusive items that you can pledge on, so please go ahead and consider supporting us!
Also, I am very excited about the fact that a part of the funds will be donated to a project that I deeply admire and that deserves to be supported for their amazing efforts, dedication and hard work: ProjectArte. They have been working on education through art in a group of schools from a problematic neighborhood in Porto (Portugal), and so far they have had incredible results with the students, their families and the community.
I truly believe that projects like this one are helping to build a more educated, creative, aware, equal and peaceful world.
