In 2017 Michele made the decision to leave his island home and embrace the world to learn even more from teachers he discovered along his journey. Since arriving in Australia he had the privilege of meeting and befriending some of Sydney’s biggest influential musicians:
Josè Antonio Marquez Muzzio ( “El Toño” ) - One of Australia’s biggest Latin musicians, drummer and percussionist, along with his dad.
Josè Marquez - a great musician and teacher whom arose El Toño with his heritage of Afro-Cuban music and percussion since he was only 3 years old.
Marcelo Malovini - one of the greatest conga and bongò players in Australia.
Juan Carlos Allende - an amazing classical orchestra percussionist specialised in Afro-Cuban style from La Havana, Cuba, which gave to Michele the honour to perform with him in the Gai Bryant latin-jazz orchestra from Sydney.
Michele’s dreams became true, his life, had become only about music, performing, teaching and studying, having the honour to be part of a master class with the greatest percussionist in the world Giovanni Hidalgo, developing his own methods of study and teaching techniques through his knowledge and experience.
