MeiaMeia Receives Percussive Notes Review!

“…I find it difficult to focus my thoughts amidst a flood of adjectives that spring to mind in response to the auditory joyful discovery this CD provides…Projeto Arcomusical takes the berimbau way beyond Brazil in its path toward new musical expression while assuring the musical bow’s connectivity to its roots in both Brazil and Sub-Saharan Africa. I find myself without hesitation in offering Projeto Arcomusical the highest recommendation I could humbly fathom.” — N. Scott Robinson
