From an early age, singer, songwriter and guitarist Rommel Ribeiro has been surrounded by art. Inspired by Brazilian musicians Caetano Veloso, and Chico César, Rommel decided to pursue music. After the release of his debut album Transcendental (2006) Rommel arrived in Canada, meeting and performing in both the People Project Band and The Souljazz Orchestra. In the following years, Rommel honed his own style, a mixture of popular Brazilian music, afrobeat, reggae, funk and jazz, in his sophomore album Egológico Recycle. With a soulful upbeat sound, Rommel’s music will put a groove in the audiences’ step.
