Dan is a very funny guy with quite an act.
Although he hails from Brazil, he travels
extensively all around the world.

During his journey from and to Malaysia,
he performed for some Beduins (Nomadic gypsies of the desert)
in exchange for food/shelter and safe passage.
Some of it is shown in the clip below.

His street act translates very well to the
stage as well, it's worth your time to give
this video a once or twice over.

This is a link to his website if you're interested.

Our fourth that Dan is a real nice guy, who carrys a gentle, humble yet street wise spirt about him.

Bloody Hell, Mario never made mention of this
interview until Dan mentioned it recently.

Dan talks about the first time Bedouins(Touaregs)
in his travels witness street theatre.
