MUSIC – Accordion

My music is based on cultural traditions of Europe and the Americas in an effort to bring back audiences to the roots of their cultures. Far from attempting carbon copy museum pieces of traditional music, I write new music based on their themes and ideas, bringing a contemporary flavor to the popular music of yore.

I do a variety of projects with different musicians, not believing in the idea of a single ensemble but enjoying the process and creativity achieved working with new people. Most of these involve performing my own work, but in others I contribute solely as a performer. The idea is that music can progress more rapidly if treated as a theater production instead of a long-term touring band.
