Two weeks of music, full immersion obviously, i had the chance to go for 2 main reasons.
First I’m a very good Italian Chef, and they called me to help them preparing food for 150 people, and i did it every day… the art of cuisine has been my first love and as everybody knows “the first cut is the deepest”
Second i love to play music, actually i like to make music and it doesn’t matter which kind of music i do.. i just love the “sound” of it.
So we had really so much fun at the festival, we spent 2 weeks together and i was able to convince 100 musicians from all over the world to eat “spaghetti” well who wouldn’t?
The “Theater” in Sagarnaga
Wondering in the fields of Moisdon-La-Riviere (but i swear there is no riviere) i realize that the place was filled up with very very very “talented” guitarists, I was at the beginning of my “music-journey” so I adapted my self to learn, to better understand music; Lay low and listen to them..
I learned so many different technique watching all “virtuoso” having fun on their guitars. I was a bit envious.
I discover how to obtain a very nice sound on guitar; We have to execute as less notes as possible in order to have time to look for the next magic “sound” and so I did it, i learned how to perform on stage under the influence of “weed” 😁 (what can i say, hoping Italian government will legalize it asap) While i was there, I wrote also my first composition and i convinced 100 musician from 10 different nations to help me with the production of my video, obviously the “spaghetti” had to be very very very verissimamente good, (that’s was the deal)
Mauricio is a Musico (musician in spanish)
He is a real one, serious… 😍 He lives “of” music, in every sense. His father, called by the band in Sagarnaga, “Poumon” which in French means lung, is a flutist. He can build his own instrument by scratch with just a bunch of bamboo canes and he tunes the newly born flute “on the fly” with a little knife, is a genius.
here one of his video, spectacular
“Any-who”, the approach Mauricio has on guitar is very classic, but in the mean time is completely open to any kind of music, he likes very “good” hard-rock.. but it’s a secret…

The video I’m presenting is one of his last composition, have to admit, i was really amazed.
Guitars are woven in as a tapestry, you can feel the “rock influence” in a few steps among the song, but suddenly all the tribal soul of his music comes on the surface to offer you a incredible “trip” in one of the most fascinating country of South America, in other words I’m talking about The “deep soul” of Bolivia.
To be straight, this is a fantastic track written and executed with passion.
