I've shot countless concerts and live performances. Ra Diaz is certainly one of the most naturally gifted bassists I've ever met. From Chile in South America, he was living in Mexico and working with Mexican Hip Hop Artist Nina Dioz when I first met him. The performance I filmed - August 23rd, 2011, was Ra's first time performing in the USA. He was nervous. I told him to just be himself and do what he does. The crowd was cheering at the end of the first song. Ra plays with such energy and passion. You can't help but be moved by his masterful, funky, fluid grooves.
