"Since I was a kid,my parents exposed me to a great amount and variety of music,and now I..m thankful for that.That..s the reason because of my very extensive musical taste for almost any genre.
And that..s the reason too many times I..m in a fix,'cause I hear something and I think,I want to do that,but the next day I hear another thing and I want to do that too,but I haven..t time to do everything I'd like to do.This have given me the posibility to perform in a lot of projects quite diferents each other."
