Half Uruguayan, half Argentinian, Fede earned his bachelor’s in jazz performance at the Berklee International Network and promptly shipped out to work as a showband drummer aboard Carnival Cruise Lines. He then moved to London, where he ran a weekly Cuban music night at the famous Ronnie Scott’s jazz club before one day emailing Sam to insist that they start an agency.
Now Barcelona-based, he finally gets to see the sun again, and is able to meet Lime musicians who dock minutes away from his house. He spends most of his free time in the mountains; legend has it that he’s survived a winter in the Yukon with nothing but a sharp stone and a pair of drumsticks, although his wife claims that “he couldn’t make a salad at home if his life depended on it”. Thanks, Yana.
