He also creates many of the visual elements, such as the editing and visual effects found in the short film. Working in music for over 10 years, Knafo aspires to open himself up to the world and share his music across borders. His compositions have played in many clubs around the globe and have been remixed by renown DJs such a Dale T, Miguel Graca and Vincent Lemieux. A musician of multiple influences, Knafo studied percussion in Cuba 4 years in a row and made his debut as the drummer in the indie group San Citrus. Today, offering downtempo electronic music, Knafo undeniably enjoys the art of fusion since he produces his songs with pop music principles, with verses and choruses, making electronic music accessible to a larger audience.
