I’ve always lived a little away from fellow musicians, so soloing has been the smart choice! It’s a way of looking into myself and reacting to it. Most of the time I pass the reflections coming from inside. It’s important to choose what to reflect to other beings. I try to get the best out of me and resonate it with my music. There’s so much I try to leave behind when making music.

In May 2016 my second solo guitar album “Andalusian Illusion” is released. I’ve spent some time in Andalusia to study and listen flamenco. I really admire this music – the variety of moods, the rhythms, the rich expressions of guitar! This album captures lots of memories, dedications and inspirations through my own compositions.
