”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, composer, vocalist and educator lend him an artistic passport into almost any musical situation.”
"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."
