But first steps in music were in his teens singing and playing guitar in folk and rock groups.

But it was many years later, in 1990, when he assumed his role as percussionist in music, after different periods travelling and living in Brazil.. He settled in a house 30 kms away from Buenos Aires where he built his first “percussion-room” and started his studies of afro-american rhythms. His teachers in the art of percussion were Bam Bam Miranda, Abdoulaye Badiane, Ricky Olarte, Pocho Porteño, Hugo Nuñez among others. He has been part of several bands related with afro-percussion, bossa nova, samba, salsa, rock, south-american folk, tango, etc. Nowadays, again living in B.A. , is part of a duet with 6-string bass player Hector Pegullo and a Bossa & Samba Trio directed guitar player Cesar Blondet and participates as guest musician in other groups.
