I started music at the tender age of 9. First studying the accordion for 3 years, I went on to teach myself to play piano, classic guitar, Portuguese Guitar Fado, Brazilian percussions, drums, bass and voice.

In 1998, I've worked with, collaborated with, recorded with Jamaican artists such as Jah Mason, Turbulence and Norrisman; the bluesman Big Joe Turner and many more.

In 2018, I recorded my first album on my name called VIDA that was released after two and a half years of writing, composing, arranging and pre-production. I've created an eclectic representation of my musical inventiveness, borrowing from Jazz, Fado, Brazilian music, Funk, Reggae and hip hop.

I can sing in Portuguese (from Brazil and Portugal), French, English, Italian, Spanish and Haitian Creole, as I speak these languages.

In 2013, I've recorded a single with the amazing Clyde Spencer (The Drifters) and an EP with Trio AKOMA (mix of Portuguese and East-European music)

I've performed with Lívia Mattos (Brazil), Ricardo Ribeiro (Portugal), Emmanuel Kassimo (Gypsy from France), Jacqueline Corado (from the movie La Cage Dorée) and Indian percussionist Teepu Khan.

In 2017, my second album called MISS ERZULIE releases and I sing at Lincoln Center with Forrò in the Dark.
In this album, I've recorded all the instruments, composed, wrote the lyrics and arranged/produced all the songs.

I'm currently touring in Europe, Africa, Brazil and USA with my two bands called Fado Mãnouche trio and Uncommon Sound.

2019, I won the International Portuguese Music Award and the category Solo jazz Vocal at the NYJazzFestival.
My third album called UMA HISTÓRIA SIMPLES releases, Bireli Lagrene and Luis Guerreiro write an awesome quote about my work on it.
