I have studied Jazz for 4 years with Pierre Vaiana at the School of Music of Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso (1996-2000). Pierre thought me instrumental Ensemble classes and Jazz Harmony. I also took African Percussion classes during those four years with Souleymane Dakambary and Abdul Razak Dakambary.
I took private guitar classes with HKB (1994-1998), a guitarist from Benin, at Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.
I play a 1964 Gibson ES-175D archtop guitar and a 2004 Almansa classical/flamenco guitar.
