Manoel Cruz

Born:

Bassist, composer, arranger and producer.

The development of an authorial work was natural to Manoel Cruz.

Manoel Cruz presented himself in Concert Houses and Festivals all over the country. In 2013 he was invited to perform at the closing of the XIV Santo Domingo Jazz Festival in the Dominican Republic, being the first Brazilian Artist to participate in the festival in its 14 years of existence
