“Tio Mocaco” – With Snarky Puppy at The Irving Plaza, NY

This was Snarky Puppy’s CD release party of “We like it here” at the Irving Plaza in NY. 1100 people attended the show. We opened with Banda Magda and then I also played with Snarky Puppy. An amazing night!

So happy and excited to announce that after 3 years of intense work Banda Magda Album “Amour, T’es Là?” is finnaly here and it is available on Itunes, Amazon and CD Baby in Latin-america and the US!
The album came out REALLY nice. It features a long list of musicians from all over the world, including the core members of Banda Magda (Mika Mimura on vibes, Ignacio Hernandez on guitar, Petros Klampanis on double bass, Keita Ogawa and myself on Percussion) plus most Snarky Puppy members and many other top musicians from NYC. I have played all kinds of Percussion, Drumset, Kalimbas and even sang on it :)
All the compositions are by the great Magda Giannikou, who has also done an amazing production job next to Michael League (Snarky Puppy band-leader), and all independently. So it is worth checking it out!
