Guilherme was born in Rio de Janeiro in 1969 and as a kid was interested in the rock music of record at that time (Led Zeppelin et al).
Contact with jazz took him to Hermeto Pascoal, Naná Vasconcelos and other giant Brazilians working in their own takes on the genre, and in 1985 Guilherme began serious music studies based in percussion, first in Rio and then in São Paulo, concentrating on deeply traditional styles like jongo, congada and tambor de crioula. He began to mix the "languages" of percussion and kit drums in a style he called "percuteria" (kit drums are "bateria" in Portuguese), and moved into experimenting with electronic percussion, recording techniques, etc.
Out of this Guilherme opened his own recording studio, producing the recordings of a number of top-flight Brazilians, including the latest recording by Brazilian diva/icon Elza Soares: Mulher do Fim do Mundo (Woman from the End of the World).
