" DIÁLOGOS DUO presented a fabulous concert here– a broad mixture of the Brazilian Songbook, Choro Classics and original Tribute compositions. Their educational information on each piece was brilliant and informative. The audience comprised of numerous Brazilians was mesmerized by the music that Richard and Louis played. Highly recommended!"
