An homage to his hometown Biel-Bienne (Switzerland)
Lucas Dorado learned as a young child by his father the different styles and rhythms of South America. Later he studied drums and percussion at the Biel Bienne Conservatory (Switzerland) and finally focused exclusively on vibes. After further studies at the Biel Jazz School and the University of Lausanne, he got a scholarship from Switzerland to continue his Bachelor studies at the University of Berlin with Prof. David Friedman.
He accompanied his father in various international events; at the Festival de Vendôme (France), Festival dell'Adriatico (Italy), International Festival Rust (Austria), International Festival of Lagoa (Portugal) and many concerts throughout Argentina, Germany, Switzerland and Uruguay.
He won the 1st prize in the first "Jazz-Vibraphone Competition" in Pescara (Italy) September 2017.
