All Compositions composed, arranged and performed by Luiz Santos

Luiz Santos was born in the USA and grew up in a musical household. Both of his brazilian parents were passionate for music and inspired in Luiz a love for different rhythms. When he started playing drums at the age of 9, Luiz demonstrated talent well beyond his years.
While living in Rio De Janeiro, at age of 13, he started playing professionally with older musicians exploring various musical styles.
