He was completely self taught learning from imported records and tapes before studying and teaching in India where he conceptualized and formed his multi-cultural band Indialucia who are exploring the musical connections of Spanish Flamenco music and Indian Raga.

To date Indialucia have recorded 2 self-released albums that have earned considerable praise from the likes of Anoushka Shankar and Nitin Sawney. The band has toured consistently over the years playing in 24 countries and building a reputation for their technical musicianship and exciting live shows.
