Appearing on Soul: Voce e Eu – July 28, 2018 DJ Edson do Clube do Vinil
At a young age I was influence of my Uncle Gilberto, I began to listen to a lot of music from my country such as; accordionist and guitarist Sivuca and samba legend Martinho da Vila. As the years passed, my stepfather became my next major influence musically because he listened to Black Music. After awhile I began to enjoy Black Music like Earth, Wind & Fire, Jimmy Bo Horne, Michael Jackson & KC. I was also influenced by the funk of the 80′ and James Brown. After coming to live in Barueri I embraced the rhythms of Samba Rock despite other influences and rhythms that were arriving such as: Disco and Lambada. Over the years I have known Djavan and we have been partnered on many projects like A Pink Samba School which we have been involved with for the last 15 years while my other projects include Black music. Today I still continue to participate in projects and events when requested or invited .
