We had the good fortune of connecting with Bruno Cunha and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Bruno, can you share a quote or affirmation with us?
Yes! ‘No one is so big that cannot learn, nor so small that cannot teach.’ – Aesop. This quote helped me understand that everyone knows something about anything. It helped me to stand up and become a better teacher and not be afraid of not knowing everything (which is impossible to do). It helped me understand that it doesn’t matter how much you know you may ALWAYS learn something new from everyone.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I love doing everything related to music. I love performing, composing, arranging, producing, mixing, mastering, teaching. I love playing instruments and learning new ones. I do have a niche that I focus on, but I love music in general. As a musician, it’s tough to understand how to live well and work with what you are passionate about. But when desire and dedication come along together, it always works out. ‘Good things happen to people who are good and always show up’. I heard this quote when I moved to LA back in 2018, and it got stuck in my head.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
There are a few places I like a lot. The Americana at Brand, Duke’s in Malibu, The Federal Bar in North Hollywood used to have a cool jam session with great musicians on Tuesdays, Universal Studios, Woodspoon in Downtown is an amazing Brazilian restaurant, Urth Caffe in Pasadena, Casa Bianca Pizza Pie in Eagle Rock
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I am really grateful for the parents I have. Even though they knew it would be tough, they never stopped believing in me. They never felt like I needed a ‘real job’.
