What’s your favourite type of mu­sic? I’m a fan of the elec­tric gui­tar so rock is my favourite genre, al­though I also stud­ied clas­si­cal gui­tar for three years. Why did you de­cide to be a mu­si­cian? In 1985 Brazil was go­ing through a tran­si­tion from a mil­i­tary govern­ment to a Repub­lic again. In the same year, with the end of the mil­i­tary regime, the Rock in Rio mu­sic fes­ti­val started and I saw the band that made me be­come a mu­si­cian: Iron Maiden. Artists you ad­mire? Steve Vai, of Whites­nake and Frank Zappa fame, is an amaz­ing gui­tarist and com­poser. Tosin Abasi – the gui­tarist of pro­gres­sive me­tal band An­i­mals as Lead­ers – plays an eight-string gui­tar like no other, mix­ing jazz fu­sion, me­tal and clas­si­cal. Your all-time favourite song? Beethoven’s Sym­phony No 9. My mum used to play it for me as a baby.

Few As Much per­form at Jam­base, Souq Mad­i­nat Jumeirah, Tues­days

to Satur­days from 9pm to 1am.
