In addition, he has participated in various masters with percussionists and drummers of world renown (Peter Sadlo, Steve Smith, Dave Weckl, Ellade Bandini, Cris Coleman) and carries out his work in the recording studio as a drummer / percussionist and arranger with records to his credit at the Soundroom of Alghero.
