Yuman was born 24 years ago, from an italian mother and a Cape-Vert father. He is the eldest of three siblings and his life, already quite challenging, had soon put him in front of a sudden growth. Yuman reacted using music as a shelter; a wunderkammer, a powerful place of comfort kept hidden for a long time. He then decided to open this“room” and explore its contents, making of music his life. In 2015 he took a sabbatical from work and travelled around Europe: from London he moved to Berlin, where he could meet another artistic melting pot, which gave him the opportunity to jam with local musicians. Back in Rome he met the producer and owner of Leave Music, Alberto Quartana, who recognized at first sight his great talent and decided to produce him, intrusting Francesco Cataldo as artistic producer of the project. The 2019 begins with YouTube mentioning Yuman among the 10 most promising artists of 2019 in the "The sound of 2019" ranking. In September, his debut album "Naked Thoughts" finally comes out, preceded by the singles "Twelve" "Run" and "I Will".
