I absolutely love traditional jazz. Combine that with someone who is inspirational on many different levels, and we've got ourselves the perfect conversation for Christmas.
Luis Martelo is a talented Taunton-based trumpeter with an incredible story to share... from being mentored to play the trumpet in Portugal when he was young, to having to give it up when he became homeless, to moving to Taunton and winning multiple silver medals at the Global Music Awards.
Listen to Luis talking with me about his life in music, his love for community and the spirit of Christmas that comes through so strongly in his words.
It was so lovely chatting with him and if you fancy some positivity and warmth this festive season, take a listen here...
