Hi, here's Edi Vallarino, drummer & percussionist from "el barrio del mondongo" in Buenos Aires, Argentina. My "drum town"? The american syncretism, in a few words, all the rhythms from Nola, Cuba, Peru, Bolivia and, of course, Argentina. I've played or recorded with Vanesa Butera, David Hudson, Huancara, Wilkins, Los Alonsitos, Alex Pandev, King George Clemons, Nestor Cespo, Sexteto Imperial, and much more.

Most memorable Next-Level PerformanceSo many moments, but I remember so much a concert at the Teatro Coliseo, in Buenos Aires, with the great singer Paula Frondizi.
What Drives Your Creativity?New Orleans rhythms, bolivian huayno, argentine milonga and peruvian cumbia.
