his uniqueness is not just in his name, sound but in his insatiable appetite for social justice, cohesion, community empowerment and the upholding of human rights among our beautiful communities” so says Estanislau, outlining his personal philosophy on life purpose. The singer/ song writer/producer with an inclination to DRAMATIC Neo-Soul/Rnb/pop is a box of surprises and feels of an all-around music superstar and still holding a great deal of humility and soft spookiness. Neo-Soul can be described as a music genre that allows him freedom of expression and no limitation as a singer, a mellow and oozing with maturity inclining to classical soul, R&B and pop. The music bug has been biting him his entire life to the very first time he tried studio in 2011 recording my first album titled Never Give Up (To be reedited in 2017).
His a marvel and amazing artist to watch when he transforms on stage where he gives that 101% of him, never missing the expression as an artist-audience interaction on his born techniques.
