"Caio Afiune gave me his CD a week ago and I can't stop listening to it. I have played it for my wife and friends as well. His music takes you on a journey to a different culture. The playing is super and in the moment with real sensitivity and sophistication. They say God is in the details and his writing has such great detail and dynamics." - Jerry Bergonzi
