Biography

I started my music as a folk musician in 1996. I have since then developed and grown musically to the point where I have had the pleasure of playing with big names in music like Gerald Albright, Sadao Watanabe, Lionel Loueke, Eric Marienthal, Tshaka Mayanja, Chicago Blues Band, Inside Out from Swiss among others. On the local scene I have played and recorded with a lot of local artists giving their music that traditional touch, that world music feel that makes their music stand out. I am currently working on creating fun music with local pop artists and it's an ongoing process
