Since a very early age I was fascinated with the invisible world within. Unable to get answers from the educational establishment and religion, I turned away from a regular career and went searching the world to experience different ways of community living.

Kula (2008)


I was born in Africa and raised in Portugal. And, since a very early age, I was fascinated with the invisible world within ourselves. Unable to get answers from the educational establishment and religion, I turned away from a regular career and went searching the world to experience different community live setups.

 
I became a passionate practitioner of African percussion around 1992, after my first mystical experience with non-linear reality. Through the power of the drum, I attracted new friends with whom I would form a living small community – Casa da Ribeira - and later on create the first West African music and dance ensemble rooted in Portugal – Djamboonda.

 

From the experiences in community living, intensive drumming, arts and culture and healing arts promotion and practice, I matured to what I am and do today.

 

Meeting Joanne Gribler (Laughter yoga teacher) Arthur Hull (Drum Circle facilitation) and Wilbert Alix (TranceDance - Contemporary Shamanism) was the last big turning point in my life.

 

I’m still seeking, searching, learning, traveling, living new ways to bring sound, rhythm, vibration, movement, contemporary shamanism into my experience and through all that serve others.

 

With music as my passion, drive and medicine I created in 2006 RitMundo - a company which creatively promotes and organizes group experiences in order to inspire people to come closer to themselves, sharing and empowering their spirit and to support people’s conscious evolution towards more Live, more Love, more Passion, more Fun.
