    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.
