“After I returned from Romania, my life changed and in good! I had a great experience in this European country. I felt that I was able to share, together with the Jazz Fusion Trio, Fluxus, to the Romanian public and to the other participants in the Competition a small part of my country music and culture, a positive image of what Venezuela is in fact, a big culture and nation with a great potential. I was delighted to see that the public really enjoyed and appreciated our music. That experience gave me a pure vibration, pure imagination that launched me in every experience I had since then. I still have it with me, here in China”, says the drummer.
