rhythm and inspiration


«If you celebrate it, it's art, if you don't, it isn't.»

John Cage

My very own approach to music and art is a continuous one. By learning and being always curious for something new - I try to go on. It feels more like a way than a static viewpoint.

I have performed in over 20 countries. For years I have been an invited artist at international festivals. These experiences are incredibly enriching!

Having already met and worked with so many great artists, having gone the long road of technical progression - the way gets longer and longer and at the same time: it gets more beautiful.

I believe there is not one percussion - not "one hitting" the drums - or just touching softly a marimba. It is a performance - it is about music.

Art is - whatever you do - always a matter of awareness.
