The style of music that I play is termed "World Jazz" and is a unique mixture of Jazz, Brazilian, and soul/funk. The compositions are mainly written by me and are in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, Hebrew and a mix of all of those. You can hear some of the material on my web site
I play guitar in a unique way, playing the Bass, chords, and melody at the same time. you really have to see it to believe it.

I do regular solo guitar gigs in the US mainly around the VA and NY areas, and jazz festivals in different parts of the world including several in South America.
The music is mainly acoustic in approach and I use purely players who can do things in that way.
