- most of these gigs were in Argentina, 16 gigs were in Japan and 1 in Vienna, Austria

… on top of several live performances for Canal 7TV…

I released 3 records, completed the original soundtrack for Pablo Rodriguez Jauregui's animation film Claustropolis (with Matias Mango) and worked with the wonderful Orchestra of Crafty Guitarists.

I played in different kinds of stages such as Malba, Virasoro, Centro Cultural Borges, Parque de EspaƱa, the Ezeiza Prison, Casa Brandon, River Plate Stadium, Luna Park, Una Casa, Ciudad Universitaria de Buenos Aires, Templum, Inboccalupo, Centro Cultural Rojas, and the amazing Shoyukan sake factory in Shiga…

In London I walked around and visited my friend Juan, also saw Simon Fisher Turner and Alan Courtis...

and walked by the apartment where I used to live almost 22 years ago in Notting Hill...

In Vienna I played at FLUC with Uchihashi Kazuhisa, Burkhard Stangl and Wiener, three superb guitarists!
