"It is very rare to find an American musician who embraces our music and culture with such passion and authenticity. Richard Boukas is one of these exceptional artists. His diverse talents as a guitarist, vocalist, composer and educator lend him an artistic passport into almost any musical style."

Paquito d'Rivera

"Very few musicians today can be so adept at the arts of composition, arrangement and performance of a musical language that they were not born into. Richard Boukas is one of these rare individuals, and I heartily recommend his work in all its multiple forms. He definitely has captured the soul of Brazilian music in his heart."

Jovino Santos Neto
three-time Grammy nominee
former member, Hermeto Pascoal Grupo

"If I didn't know Richard Boukas I would certainly think he was a Brazilian from Pernambuco. When playing his works, we observe the refinements of a well-crafted language which has a Brazilian identity extracted with a mastery of our culture.

In DIÁLOGOS DUO, we have a "Musical Conversation" between Boukas- a daring, pioneering composer and guitarist with a very Brazilian accent- allied with the talented clarinetist Louis Arques who has the Brazilian wind as a trademark in his playing. 

Hail, Richard and Louis - Brazilian Music thanks you for the valuable contribution you are making by taking our sound around the world !!"
