"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."
