In 1994 he was playing at Pernambuco’s night. And in each new show were emerging new friendships, allowing the expansion of his musical knowledge, and the opportunity to have contact with the music elements, which helped a lot in his training.
Few years later he began performing solo and thereafter were emerging new bands invitations to trio-elétrico (Carnival), bar, weddings, exhibition shows, recordings, etc. It was a time of great learning.
