    I had such an amazing experience with Marcelo. He was always quick to respond and super nice. He went above and beyond to capture the flute part and sound I was looking for, and added incredible improvisations in addition to my composed part. I would not hesitate to recommend him and I definitely hope to work with him again. Thank you so much Marcelo! :)

    Marcelo is probably the most talented musician I have ever met.

    A mix of extreme knowledge and pure flow, he has set the bar really high on South American folk flutes that most musicians pale in comparison.
    A super talented, ethical, open-minded, non-egoic musician is a rare find!
    I will hire him on every chance I have.
