Music, Movies, and Books

Passionate about music, I play djembe, bongo, cajon peruano, didgeridoo, and melódica. I am left-handed so it`s harder for me to learn string intruments, also percussion is more abouth rythm and improvisation and that´s what I like.
I listen almost every kind of music but mainly Roots Reggae, Rock, Blues, Ska, Jazz, Funk, Salsa, and Argentinian Folk and Rock Music.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

-Played Hotel California in FengHuang Gu Cheng (please google that place it's out of this world) with some Chinese guys on a snowy night, I think it was the only moment I could communicate for 5 minutes with locals in the deep China. Language barrier there is inmense, sometimes too frustrating but music made a connection impossible to explain!
-Blowed dynamite, smoked a cigarette and drunk 96° alcohol with the devil and miners in the mines of Potosi, Bolivia (the largest silver reserve that ever existed)
-Worked 8 months on a cruise ship travelling around central and north america, from Colombia to Alaska
-Lived in Cusco, Peru as a volunteer in a hostel after travelling around South America
-Hitchhiked in Malaysia from tea plantations to ancient rainforests till Thailand
-Helped a Cambodian family in Koh Rong (a beautiful pristine island) to take their broken wooden boat from the sea and repair it, it is their main and only economic income.
-Crossed Europe by land from Spain to Russia during more than 3 months to see the FIFA World Cup 2018.
