Born in Sabadell, he studied classical music as a child. From the age of 6 to 18, he completed the piano elementary grade.

At the age of 20, a diatonic appeared in a market. At that time, under the master's degree of Mestre Marimon, he graduated from the AMPT of the Department of Culture of the Generalitat de Catalunya as a Diatonic Accordion Master. At that time he played with folk dance ensembles, such as Blat Segat and Correfolk, and with others such as La Txaranga Revoltosa, which specializes in tex-mex.

At the turn of the century, with Pomada, a small Basque-style formation with Caribbean flavors, he recorded the Disc 1, with the production of Mestre Batllés. The album received the award for best folk album by the magazine Enderrock. At the same time, he iniciated in glosa, especially in the form of "garrotins". An area in which he has been a teacher and in which he still gives workshops in the country's schools.

Shortly afterwards, with other musical figures from the country (Marcel Caselles, Joan Reig, Titot, Peptoni Rubió and David Rossell), he formed Mesclat, a rock-folk band in which he played for several seasons.

Later, with the same desire to resume and revitalize our musical heritage, he formed El Belda and the ensemble Badabadoc, a classical rock quartet that, with Caribbean rhythms, revisited the Catalan songbook.

More recently, with Carles Sanjosé, Jordi Casadessús and Colma Bertran –under the initiative of the Càntut Festival–, he has woven the show / disc Càntut, which has also received several awards (Teresa Rebull of the Fira Mediterrània, Enderrock Award).

He currently performs solo with the diatonic, such as the Romanç de les històries naturals, based on the novel by Joan Perucho, or in small committee, with Jaume Arnella, Joan Garriga or Marc Serrats, and with the version set to music by Joan Díaz of Bestiari by Carné.
