Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, violinist, composer and producer Matorin began performing professionally at the age of 15 and has since had the honor of being featured as a soloist at such prestigious institutions as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center and MoMA. He’s played for such dignitaries as Oprah, Billy Joel, and General Colin Powell. While rooted in classical and jazz traditions, his music is also influenced by modern dance and grooves from around the world to create immersive, genre-bending sonic textures and landscapes live using sound effects and loops. As an event curator Matorin has worked with world class talent over the last 5 years to produce inspiring experiences as diverse as intimate cacao ceremonies and soundbaths to epic 28-hour marathon collaborative performances.
