“To have participated in the Batuka was always a great joy for me. Since the first time in ’96, and at the second edition, as a jury member (Who am I to judge them?) and also at the recording of the CD and winners meeting! It was very good, at the time, to certify I was at the right track, making my basic stuff well, to meet Vera and Carla and the other drummers too!!! Today I´m very proud to be participated in its first edition and miss it so much!!! But I´m sure that even far away I´m a member of the Batuka! family!!! I wish tons of health and music to everyone and long life to the Batuka!"
