    The Brazilian born artist started playing percussion at 12, in the big band,Rapazes da Alvorada. It was necessary a motion from the court, since the basic stage for the band was at the Cabaret Boite Cuba, where in 1955 was a popular night spot. His talent was soon noticed and he was considered a catalyst when he was still a teenager. He revolutionized Brazilian conga
    drums by introducing 16 new ways of playing the instrument and veteran conga masters, including Jorge Arena, Rubens Bassini and Laudir de Oliveira approached him to learn his style. He performed with the top Brazilian
    artists during his adolescence and at 25, he left Brazil on top of his profession, but under the pressure of the military dictatorship.

    His rising as a percussionist, in America, was overnight. He recorded with Joao Donato's recordings in Abade, four days after his arrival in Los Angeles, on December of 1969. That recording session was loaded with the best studio musicians of the time, including Emil Richards, Joe Porcaro,Larry Banker,Paulo
    Magalhaes, among others. They became his friends and he became a studio musician in America. His name entered The Encyclopedia of Jazz in the
    Seventies, By Leonard Feather and Ira Gittler, Introduced By Quincy Jones. His style with polyrhythm was loved by the experts. Drummers called him the only conga player to perform without incompatible pattern. That was the birth of his conga drum school, which established conga drum back beat patterns for R&B, Pop and Rock styles. He also created jazz patterns for conga drums that were compatible with drum set playing, beyond the usual shuffle.
