About the author
As a musician, after working together with others for the past decade, the time has come to release an album of my own!
I have had a career within folk music and i like to play acoustic instruments that are common in that scene: the cavaquinho, mandolin, bouzouki, viola braguesa … But i also grew up with the club culture and gave in the temptation to merge these two styles, by many considered opposites.
