After a year of diligent training, in 2012, Daniele was admitted to the Saint Louis College Of Music (Rome, Italy), where he studied for three years and expanded his musical horizons.
My first band and I played Groove Metal, but when I went to Italy, I decided to enroll in a jazz bass course. This drastically changed my approach to music and helped me discover new horizons. I became interested in different and varied styles.
During the years spent in Italy, I played in over 15 bands, where I experimented with jazz. Since I have been in Sofia, I have played in various ensembles as a guest musician. I recently had the opportunity to work with Argentine artist Lucas Masciano.
