Jazz percussionist and film scoring and performance dual major Fabio Rojas strives to express emotions through music that cannot be put into words. For this performance, he will be joined by recent Berklee graduate Daniel Rotem on tenor saxophone and bassist Osmar Okuma.
Hailing from Valencia, Venezuela, Rojas began his musical studies with drums at the age of 13, and then studied orchestral percussion at Colegio Emil Friedman in Caracas and jazz drums at the Universidad Nacional Experimental de las Artes. By age 19, he was playing with the most acclaimed and recognized jazz musicians in Venezuela, such as Pablo Gil, Diego Alvarez, and Gonzalo Mico.
Rojas has performed at numerous venues and events since coming to Boston, including Boston Symphony Hall, TEDx Boston, the Berklee Middle Eastern Festival, and the Boston Esplanade.
