I’m Armando and I love music.

One evening after dinner, my partner and I were wondering what to listening to next. Spotify, the streaming platform we use, knows what we like and gives us good music recommendations based on our listening habits. However, we’re adventurous listeners, and we want to be pushed outside of our comfort zones.

Spotify doesn’t push me as far out as I’d like, so I’m always exploring and experimenting with styles, genres, and sounds.

How do I do it?

I keep a list of the music that resonates most and share it with you on Listen. Subscribe now and let’s listen to more, together.
