Alex Rossi


Alex Rossi was born in 1974 in Blumenau, South of Brazil. He met the Harmonica in his childhood when passing the only harmonica factory of the Three Americas on his way to school and on the road which he followed to visit his grandmother. He often visited the factory to observe the birth of instruments ... but no one seemed to be able to play it. So the young Alexandre had to wait untill he was 13 years old to put the lips on the cold metal of his very first harmonica.

The young musician developed his own technique by profiting by his basic musical knowledge he has from the practice of saxophone and percussion, technical information given at the factory and by his musical experiments.

He played with great names of the Blues circuit, for example Hash Brown, Smokin'Joe Kubeck, Holland K. Smith, Tutu Jones, Lucky Peterson, Texas Slim, and the legendaries Sam Meyers, Robert Ealey (Alex toured with him in Texas and Oklahoma), Curly "Barefoot" Miller and Magic Slim. He shared the stage of the Tulsas's Blues Festival with Buddy Guy, Koko Taylor, Carey Bell and Roy Roger.

In 2013 Alex released the album * Alex Rossi Quartet Plays Tom Jobim* with special Guests, Mauricio Einhorn and Ludovic Beier, among other great musicians.

He uses GIULIA-Y for amplifying his Harmonica
