He has had the chance to play abroad in Uruguay, Brasil, Argentina and various cities in the United States including Chicago, San Jose and San Francisco

His harmonica playing style draws from the classic sound of Little Walter, George Harmonica Smith and Jerry Portnoy, but with an added jazzy color that gives him a signature sound.

Cristian says:

"I only play seydel harps because I find in them the perfect combination of quality sound and durability they are very comfortable to play and offer a great versatility to play different styles.

I am really honored and happy to be part of the seydel family and hope to transmit through my music there great quality and sound."
