  • Most memorable Next-Level Performance

    The shows I did with DJ Hernan Cattaneo at the Colon Theater in Buenos Aires. First concert of electronic music in Argentina. Doing Symphonic Percussion there was incredible and wonderful.
  • What Drives Your Creativity?

    On the one hand, the power to premiere and record contemporary music works. And on the other hand, playing as a sectionist with great national and international artists. And always listen to a lot of music and variety.
  • Why do you choose Vic Firth?

    I think my Vic Firth M25 Gary Burton mallets are my favorites. First for being the model of my great mentor and admired musician, and because they are very versatile, with a fair weight, ideal rattan and immersive sound.
