Fortaleza / Ceará / Brasil
band: Gabi Dorato
STICK SIZE: 5a
My name is Anderson, and I’m from Fortaleza, Brazil, a hot and welcoming city in the northeast region of my country. I play the drums since 2006. Professionally, since 2019.
I’ve always loved the drums, but the first instrument I started playing was the electric guitar, when I was 14. Back then, I had just moved to this new school where I met new friends and formed a band. There was no drummer in that school, so I offered to play the drums even though I didn’t have much experience in it. I never had someone to teach me, so I taught myself. At that time, there was no youtube to help me, so I learned from watching rock music videos on MTV.
Back in 2009, this new underground scene emerged in my city, Fortaleza. It was then that I formed a band called “Left Inside” with my friend Jonas Rio. We accomplished some goals, such as playing at festivals and band competitions. We actually won one of these competitions and used the prize to record our first single, called “Red like my hope”. Nowadays I play for a local artist called Gabi Dorato. We perform at pubs and festivals in Fortaleza and other nearby cities. I intend to take formal drum lessons because I believe it is crucial to have theoretical knowledge and learn about the drums beyond practice.
