Born on July 7th, 1966 in Benevento Italy.
Pick up the magical piece of wood at an early age, after my father showed me enough to get me spellbound…
Rock, Jazz, Impro, ethnic music ? Just a matter of frequencies, vibrations and emotion.
After having made my debuts in Italy with the band “Radex” playing several times for the Italian television Rai, I sign up in the Modern Jazz School of Siena (CPM) and join the Astralia Magic Orchestra Big band, proposing an interpretation of Charles Mingus’ compositions.
Time to roam the earth in search of my musical language.
1995… South of France to hit the road with Caligagan as lead guitarist and co-composer. Two albums will be born : “Seven Languages” and “Naked Garden”.
I am to meet wonderful and interesting humans, from very different musical backgrounds
Philippe Loli, guitarist and composer (touring in Bahamas, Guatemala, Germany), the Chinese violinist Zhang Zhang of the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic (touring in Switzerland, Thaïland), the experimental Jazz band Neoma, giving birth to “Space Gari”, the young British band The Rua, with whom I will play in New-York alongside Clive Deamer (Drummer of Robert Plant Band, Portishhead, Radiohead) and Nigel Harrison (Bass player of Silverhead, Iggy Pop, Blondie).
Ultimately a new collaboration has started with the French singer and producer Medi and Paperface, Kevin Joseph o’Hara and amazing guitarist, Louis de Cicco with whom I humbly share a piece of antic soul…
And sometimes… sometimes… I stop roaming, fall asleep on a desert beach and wake up with a new song…
