Joel is a singer-songwriter currently playing a magical strange instrument called sazouki, a blend of Turkish saz and Greek bouzouki. This instrument can be heard on two albums, Sweet Sazouki Spell and Both Sides Now, and on various singles.

Joel was born in Brazil and the groove and the harmonies from his native country are always present, in a way or another.

Joel has played the mandocello for longtime and this work can be heard on the two albums he recorded in Brazil. The first one, Canções, has many special guests including Chico Pinheiro and Eugénia Melo e Castro, and a traditional flavor. The second one, Labirinto, has a very specific color with a Bossa Nova quartet and a string orchestra. Both were produced by Swami Jr, a great musician, producer and the music director of the Buena Vista Social Club.

Joel is always evolving and transforming, a kind of alchemist of songs. Besides singing his compositions, Joel makes original arrangements of songs from great songwriters. He recorded covers of songs from Bob Dylan, Georges Brassens, Jerome Kern, Joni Mitchell, Akira Mitake, Giuseppe Verdi, Jimi Hendrix, Cartola and many others.

The two albums, Sweet Sazouki Spell and Both Sides Now, and the three singles, I Don't Live Today,  Aeromoça and 川の流れのように were recorded and released in 2021.
