Born and raised in NYC, I am of Yoruba ( Afro-Cuban), Spanish and Chachi-Cayapa (Ecuador) descent. All My Blessings includes the Native American flute, the South American panflute, conga, and acoustic guitar. My music reflects my pride in both my Amerindian and Yoruba heritage, and connection with Indigenous cultures. I believe that playing music is like reciting poetry, made from my heart.
