Great saxophonist and of beautiful artistic conception. Thanks to a joint musical project that was carried out in Valencia in May 2002, I was able to discover the multiple qualities of Xelo, as a musician, as an artist, involved at the level of the organization and the scenic conception, a musician with a great personality”.
