“My professional career has been an extensive one. Firstly, I was studying classical piano and then I took part in various jazz festivals around the world. I performed with other band such as Orlando Valle, Maraca and Cubanismo throughout the world. I wanted to come here because there are dreams that can come true. There is music to be played.  There are professional people here and we need to show them solidarity, as is the case with teacher Perrote. We want everyone to know that we are here for the youths.  I’m here for them and for the music. I’m here for the ideas that continue to be marvelous.”
