”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.”

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."
