My journey with drums begins with the project Toca Rufar, in Portugal, back in 1997. For some unknown reason I just sign in for the project and soon after my life turns on to a different beat. Much faster. Much stronger. I learned how to play. I joined the ranks. It became a passion. It became a life style. A couple of years into the project and I found my true path. I started conducting the Toca rufar Orchestra. I composed. I taught. I choreographed. I had found my true calling. I had found myself. It was in front of 300 people playing drums that I felt more alive. For years I shared hopes, dreams and a vision for the future with the founder and director Rui Junior. My mentor, my adoptive father. We jump start the drum tradition in Portugal and we gave it power.
