Tupahn is a dynamic performer with a stage presence that reflects his native tropical sensuality. His music is engaging and full of the intensity that drives the human spirit. He has a unique “finger picking” guitar technique, unparalleled “falsetto” singing style and broad range of musical influences combined in a kind of alchemy to produce something wholly new and original. Tupahn plays the melody, the bass and the chords of a song simultaneously and he never plays it in the same way twice.
Although each performance of a song is different and unique, the crystal-clear quality of the notes and the passion Tupahn brings to his interpretation of the pieces remains constant. People usually approach him to ask if he uses support background music during his shows. He takes it as a compliment and answers with a smile: “It all comes from these fingers and this heart”.
