About Me


exploring contemporary ethnic music around the world


I'm a filmmaker, Dj, anthropologist and journalist convinced in the social efficiency of the art and the culture as tools of awareness, I have developed several intercultural projects in collaboration with different NGO's and associations in Argentina, Spain, Senegal, France, Morocco, Portugal, Turkey and Mali.


Try to feel always surprise, develop personal projects that mix art and social conscience, break stereotypes about the poor countries showing their wealth and cultural diversity.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I can show my city to other persons, helping them to know some interesting parts that are not easy not find if you came as a tourist, and also to participate in some events in Valencia and in the other places that I visit collaborating as world music DJ.


I make CS in Turkey during autumn 2010. I already have had some funny experience during my last travet to Africa during the winter 2010 when I met some people that leave me to sleep in their houses for free and we started a friendship.


adventure, travell, enjoy, meet different people and cultures, and food, and landscapes, and music, and colours and ways of life and think and sometimes... a spanish omelette!!
