You’ve probably seen Miroca performing with Cesaria Evora (for 11 years), or excelling alongside international artists ea Sara Tavares, fadista Cuca Roseta, Nancy Veira and his uncle Tito Paris.
While Miroca Paris is known as a virtuoso percussionist and drummer, on his new album D’Alma (Nov ’17) he returns to playing guitar – like he used to – growing up in the Cape Verde Islands with his toes in the sand. Drawing on his vast rhythmic knowledge, he’s created his own unique guitar playing technique, forward driving, playful, surprising and fresh.
