Maria Quintanilla

"Working with Maria is one of the best and most emotional experiences in my career as a Sound Engineer. Her voice is full of emotion, soul and beauty, and it's hard not to get emotional while working on one of her tracks. Maria is a unique talent and she always, always delivers!" - Jose Diogo Neves

Breathing Taiwan CD Release

This album release concert has been a highly anticipated event since April 2017. Virtuoso Taiwanese percussionist Sayun Chang moved to Taiwan shortly after recording this album so we were never able to perform this album live until now! If you live or are passing through (or really want to come, which you should!) Hartford, CT, please join us in this exclusive otherworldly tribute to the unheard stories of Taiwanese ancient culture and its fascinating history. With a $10 donation you will receive a signed card (by all the artists involved) containing the HD download code for this album so you can enjoy this music everywhere you go.
