“PHISQA is one of the best sounds that I've heard in 2012! The beauty of peruvian music comes with a sophisticated personality and full of melodic and harmonic textures. It's interesting to see a work detach from the clichés of peruvian music and at the same time win over the land of jazz with so much class! Beautiful! Congratulations!” Fernando Baggio RDT, Souza Lima Conservatory Drum Teacher, Danielle Cavallon
