This album is dedicated to my Grandfather (my mentor) who saw the musician in me when I was
only 3 years old and decided to build me my first instrument... That's how this whole trouble
started...:-)) I have been fortunate and blessed by the music and mostly by my #1 supporter "my
MOTHER".
I hope i can live up to everything she taught me... Still a long way 2 go... :-))
