What you'll do

I’ll take you to the iconic ‘Estudio Casa do Mato’, at Gávea neighborhood. This very exclusive studio - high profile pros only - has been the stage for Brazilian artists like Milton Nascimento, João Bosco, Seu Jorge, Luiz Melodia, Barão Vermelho and Lulu Santos, amongst others, and also international starts, like Jason Mraz. There, we’ll enjoy some refreshments (yes, beer as well, why not?) and snacks while talking about Brazilian music history, development and today’s scene. Then.... THEN....
WE WILL HEAD TO THE RECORDING ROOM!
Myself, a drummer and a bassist (sometimes a keyboard, sometimes a sax, sometimes both, who knows?!) will start jamming over some of the finest Brazilian standards and other hidden gems of the super rich Brazilian songbook. You can enjoy this jam session from the control room, watching closely as the sound engineer do his magic, or with us, as we play a different set every time. You will see, first hand, great music being played and recorded live! But that’s not all.
You and your party will take part on the recording! You will be the ‘announcer’ of the track: as a DJ, you’ll will introduce the song and say the names of everyone at your party as ‘sponsors’ of the track. How cool is that?!
And, to put the cherry on top of the cake, all tracks will be part of a Spotify playlist called ‘AirBnb Live Sessions’. And your voice will be there! Too cool...

Music is my passion and, literally, my life.
Having said that, I’m a session musician with over 25 years of experience in recording, touring and songwriting. Working both in the USA and Brazil - specially in Rio - within a wide range of genres: from jazz to Brazilian music; from blues to rock to salsa(!).
I’m a Berklee College of Music Graduate (Profissional Guitar) who played with countless names in Rio, both live and recording. Because of this long career, I developed a deep connection with the local music scene. My father, a musician back in the 50’s and 60’s, introduce me to samba, bossa nova and jazz. I than fell in love with the blues... guilty as charged.
I can talk hours and hours about the rich and diverse Brazilian music (and play as well!) specially in the company of nice people and cold beer... :)
So... be my guest!
