Curumin and Quannum Projects first crossed paths when Chief Xcel, one half of Blackalicious and one fifth of Quannum, was on tour in Brazil. Happening upon Achados E Perdidos while in São Paulo, Xcel knew immediately that this was a record that could resonate with audiences outside Brazil as well.

Later on in his teens, delving deeper i quickly formed idle, this multi-tasker was also in a band called Toca with Gustavo Lenza, which would prove to be the blueprint.

While his soccer languished, such greats like the composer of these groups that got his first taste of blowing audiences across Latin America and Europe.

As own solo project, he reconfigured his now sizable interests and experiences, the result of which was background to the soul .
