He has been invited to perform in festivals such as the Dominican Republic Jazz Festival and the Santo Domingo Music Festival, where he has shared the stage with renowned musicians from all over the world. The newly formed trio consisted of the talented Pato Banda, hailing from Germany and playing the upright bass, as well as the exceptional Chilean drummer Pablo Sáez.
