is a multi-instrumentalist and composer. While studying classical guitar at São Paulo's Municipal School of Music with Paulo Porto Alegre and Daniel Murray, Juliano began to branch out from traditional guitar technique mastering fretless guitar, baglama and oud, as well as researching traditional music from Greece and Turkey. He completed his musical studies with a master at Codarts - University for the Arts (Netherlands), under supervision of Kudsi Erguner and Michalis Cholevas.
After an intense period of studying, Juliano created projects that merge the melodic richness of the Eastern Mediterranean traditional music with his background as a Brazilian musician, with the projects Amazononm and Magma Project. He has worked as an organizer for the popular music series Winter Festival of Campos do Jordão and helps to run the label and arts collective Selo Risco. Also an active educator, Juliano recently taught at a multidisciplinary art program that works with youth in underserved São Paulo’s neigborhoods. He has also worked extensively as composer and performer for dance (with Morena Nascimento), theatre (with Martha Kiss), cinema (for Fernando Meirelles) and circus (with Sophia Oltmanns).
