At an early age, Leo started to express his passion for playing guitar and continued his immense desire for music by applying and being accepted to the School of Art and Music and graduated with a Classical Guitar and Music Theory Degree in 1980.
Leo’s life journey included a move to the United States in 1994 where he enjoyed and absorbed the many new influences that American music provided. For the next decade, all of the new musical genre he experienced have become part of his unique writing and playing style, both nylon and electric guitars.
Since 2000 he has been living in Florida and performs all over Tampa Bay Area as The Sebastian Project. Leo is available to perform with his five-piece band as well as solo, a duo, or trio, depending on your specific requirement.
The style of his music is instrumental Rumba Flamenco Fusion, influenced for example by the Paco de Lucia, Al Di Meola, and Gypsy Kings. Half of his repertoire is his original music while in his electric sets, he truly appreciates and is inspired by the playing of Ritchie Blackmore, Carlos Santana, Garry Moore, and BB King.
