Perhaps his teacher, Aquiles Priester, should get some respect as well. He has raw talent but his prowess isn't by accident.
Apparently his teacher is into "brazillian metal", which you can see is an influence in his playing. The latin clave/woodblock pattern in his left foot is pretty obvious. I can only imagine the chops his teacher must have. I can't find any videos of him in a quick search, but there's got to be something out there.
