What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music is the best way to connect with ourselves, with our most prehistoric roots. It gives me the freedom to express myself and channel different types of feelings through it, and it gives me the possibility to share what I love most with people who vibrate in my same tune.

What is your music dream?

To think about a dream would be to think of something very distant and unattainable, and the music lives with me every day, that is my dream, to be able to continue living doing what I love most. Thinking about something "impossible", I would like to be a keyboard player in Roger Waters' band.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

"Adios Nonino", from Astor Piazzola.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

I do not have a favorite artist or band, but if I had to choose one, it would be Pink Floyd.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Work with people who do not respect themselves.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

You have to be authentic and be really disciplined.
