One man, Many layers!

Travelling between Americana and Brazuka, Rafa's One Man Band is comprised of one man, and many layers. From driving funk rhythms, to string heavy pop anthems Rafa manages to walk a fine line between ego and soul, digital and analogue, musicality and production.
The resulting sound is at times so reminiscent of a full band, that Rafa himself forgets that he has no bandmates. Playing several originals, and a handful of well chosen covers(from artists such as The Beatles, Bob Marley, The Fugees, Phish The Benevento Russo Duo and My Morning Jacket) he happily strolls between being a singer/songwriter, and a lunatic loop fanatic.

The One Man Band started off an idea while Rafa was working at LilDrummBoy Recording Studios in Philadelphia. What started out as a concept was fleshed out into a full fledged musical project, with endless possibilities, and a nearly infinite potential for improvisation. The result combines elements of his Brazilian culture and heritage, with his passion for Afro Beat, Hip Hop, Reggae, Dub, and his penchant for jamming.
