When and why did you start drumming?
Actually, I don’t know when all of this started. I come from the same city where all the beats that we play were created, so, at that time, it was hard for a kid to hear those rhythms and not feel passionate about them. That happened to me, I used to drum on tables, doors, walls, or any kind of flat surface that I could get sounds from. It was enough for me to pretend to be an Olodum drummer. Crazy!!! My mom’s ears hated everything hahaha, since then I haven’t stopped. Now, I feel that everything came true! I love this!!
Do you sing or play other instruments?
I know a bit of guitar, brazilian banjo and percussion in general.
