For me, João Drumond is one of the most amazing musicians that I have ever worked with: rehearsing, performing or recording, João is always intense and expressive.

João Paulo is an outstanding musician who masters all the instruments he plays and comfortably walks through different musical styles. I'm lucky to have his input on one of my upcoming releases.
