TAMBORERO LAB is a drum-percussion ensemble workshop that I started in 2004. This drum set-percussion ensemble is inspired by the great percussion ensembles by Max Roach M`Boom, Pierre Favre Singing Drums, Milford Graves / Andrew Cyrille; african percussion artists like Doudou N´Diaje Rose, Boubakar Diagne, Famoudou Konate, emong others; as well as some originals of mine. And also there is a strong connection and influence by the so called contemporary percussion music from XX Century.

TAMBORERO LAB began as a pedagogic and didactic workshop environment to explore into the so diverse territories on which drum set-percussion music has been evolved along the drum set history. The repertoire inlcude a combination of music vocabularies and percussion techniques and languages that range from jazz, free improvisation, ethnic music, in a very unique chamber music context. The ensemble workshop started in a quartet format, presenting concerts from 2005 to 2008; then, after a brief breacking off, the workshop has develope mostly in a duo format, presenting concerts in 2012-2013, and again in 2016.
