While raised in Bahia, Brazil in his early life, and later on all around the Philadelphia region, zumi's music has its influences from an eclectic collection of sounds. These range from Brazilian music, to hip hop, jazz, alternative and more. He can play many instruments fluently, as all recorded tracks feature him on piano, guitar, bass, sax trumpet, and more. The tracks are produced by his brother zumibeats, who manages, produces, and makes the beats for all Zumi Records' artists. Zumi performs with a sturdy 10-piece band as well!!!
