"I grew up listening to a myriad of musical styles on the radiowaves of São Paulo, Brazil,  where local MPB music, Pop, Rock, Punk, Electronica, Reggae & more intertwined. That openness to what music could be about enticed me to play songs and make art that is quite diverse, thus culturally relevant in our global age."
