"Sometimes all I did was take the bus without knowing where it would take me , got to a destination that is in front of a sunset, or a mountainside or village , I observe my surroundings and I let myself be inspired by what I see. This is how I composed and wrote almost all the songs on the album. "
His album freshly released and , entitled " Living in my dreams " because according to him Mauritius gave him the opportunity to fully realize his dreams.
