On September 2017, I was playing the first time with Stevie Wonder in New York Central Park in the legendary Global Citizen Fest. In front of 90 thousand people! Also, this concert was transmitted live on YouTube and national TV around all the US. I made this concert without previous rehearsal! It has been one of the most challenged moments in my life!
Being in a recording studio making new music surrounded by great musicians and having the perfect pair of sticks to play my drums and percussion!
As a professional musician, I'm always exposed to creating new sounds for any musical situation (recording or live performance). Vic Firth offers me the perfect pair of drumsticks, mallets or brushes to get the right sound on my drums or percussion instruments to create that new sound that music needs.
