Yuman was born 23 years ago, from an italian mother and a Cape-Vert father. He is the eldest of three siblings and his life, already quite challenging, had soon put him in front of a deep pain that led him to a sudden growth. Yuman reacted to sadness using music as a shelter; a wunderkammer, a powerfull place of comfort against the grief he’s facing kept hidden for a long time. He then decided to open this “room” and explore its contents, making of music his life.
In 2005 he took a sabbatical from work and travelled around Europe: after spending some months in London he moves to Berlin, where ,during his various musical wanderings, he met the talented multi-instrumentalist and artistic producer Francesco Cataldo, who also moved there for a while. A strong friendship and professional esteem bloomed from this meeting that leading them to collaborate and produce brand new four-handed tracks sung by Yuman himself.
First demos are so powerful they are enough to get to the attention of the producer Alberto Quartana, head of Leave Music, in Berlin to complete an already existing collaboration with Francesco Cataldo.
Back to Italy Yuman signs a contract with Leave, who obtained a license agreement with Universal Music, enthusiast to become a partner of this international project he is producing.
After months of hard work and effort the project is seeing the light in late 2018 with the release of the first single TWELVE.
