But he creates pieces of a melancholic concentration supported by harmonies and multivoiced sound structures, which add an associative structure full of images and narrative dialogues to his compositions. His concerts a very successfull all over the world from places like the Berlin Philharmonie to big Clubs and Festivals. Now he is on WOMEX 11 DAYSHOWCASE ON SATURDAY
