What do you think about music industry and filesharing/internet as a promotion tool?
There’s nothing to do against internet, it’s the best promotion tool out there. I think more people listen to some band because of internet than other reason… bands have to be grateful of that. Maybe known bands hate internet because people get free songs from it, but the times are changing and musicians have to change too, there hundred of ways to make internet your best ally.
Actually, I love internet because without it I think only my sister had heard my songs, hahaha.
What do you think about Creative Commons?
I think using CC is the best way to
Inti Illimani, about 1year ago, and Al Di Meola about 3 years ago. Great concerts!

I love my home and my people, but I think I have a need of learning about all the places of this planet. You know, I feel like the World is a big garden and you have to play and share with all the neighborhood. 🙂
Where would you wish to wake up tomorrow?
In a world without stupidity, wars and cruelty. 🙂
