Nambo has a wide musical taste and listens to all types of music. Enjoys
sports, especially boxing and motor racing.
Likes to take long drives in the country, listen to music, read, watch the
children play - these things make me relax.
Nambo likes to think of himself as an instrument that connects to another
instrument with the assistance of people who by the will of the Almighty
Creator make music for the world:
I find it hard to say who is my favorite musician because so many people
make beautiful music that touches me in a special place, so I say I love
those who play with love in a spirit of sharing.
