"In the music world, the lyricism of cinema music (especially Italian) and the optimism heretat of the rhythms of traditional and Mediterranean music converge. The compositions are instrumental and descriptive, structured like petite histories".

"" I set myself several milestones when Tugores was born. First, I wanted to achieve a characteristic sound, to concretize a way of making music. There is a continuous dialogue between all the instruments in the group, they all help at one time or another in the development of the main melody, which is the soul of the theme, the idea I want to convey. Second, define as much as possible what this music aims to convey. This music aims to cover some emotional expectations that are created when a musical theme is introduced or presented, to create the same feeling that I had of warmth and complicity, as when I bought a film, a book, or a story. which they have told me, real or fantastic. Third, I wanted to address in each album a theme that inspired me music and describe this theme in detail in the composition that would be new to me ".
