I began to play drums a the age of 9. Several years later I started focussing more on Percussion and after finishing school I decided to travel to get more information about my new passion. Especially Cuba was an amazing experience full of music, Afro Cuban Percussion and adventure. I stayed for almost a year. Then I moved to Brasil and also to Senegal to play some Djembe. Working already as a professional musician.2005 I founded my own band: LARIBA. A transglobal fusion of Reggae, Salsa, Rap, Brasil and Jazz.
I’m playing Congas, Timbales, Bongos, Batàs, Cajon, Pandeiro, Djembée, and many small percussion instruments. Sometimes also some Drums and Piano.I never cared about boundaries, I always played and listened to different styles. As long as they are played well. So I found myself in different projects playing Flamenco, Salsa, Pop, Musical, Jazz, Funk, Brasil, Rock, Hip Hop or even some classical adventures. Lately I’m developing a little producing and recording thing which seems quite interesting and growing. And I’m always wondering… what’s next? (see full bio)
