Carlos Pial

I classify my sound as something of everything that rolls in the conventions of word music (a description created in the late 90s, where I described the combination of the musical instruments of the most diverse regions of the world).
From Brazilian to Latin – Afic, with clear reference, everything I think is good.
I use electronic loops for diversified effects within a sonorous and contemporary diversity.
I am a percussionist / drummer with 25 years of career and to 15 years I had the daring to leave the kitchen (to maintain the rhythm) and to come to the room (people that improvisam make up and create). Already with 04 CDs, 01 DVD recorded live and 01 DVD author class in my discography.
I also had the opportunity to show my work beyond Brazil: Switzerland, England, Portugal, Germany and Italy.
I had the honor of sharing stages with great national and international artists such as: Papete, Naná Vasconcelos, Dominguinhos, Arthur Maia, Ovem Gray, Eric Donaldson and others.

My Cymbal

Ten years ago I met Orion Cymbals, and soon I identified with all its sonority.
I use until today some lines that I think are wonderful, like: the plate tupã, the exotic china and the gongo Brazil. More like every good company is evolving and creating new series and other sonorities, Orion was no different, came creating wonderful lines of refined dishes like MS, Bex, Celebrity and others
Dishes that I use both in my shows and in recordings, always getting sounds with a lot of brightness and elegance.
