From the booklet
In 1994, I met Tulio Peramo for the first time during the guitar festival in Havana. At that time, I was 23 and Tulio nearly twice as old. The age difference didn't matter. I was touched by his wise, philosophical and poetic thoughts. He, though, had to deal with my youthful energy! From this energy and Tulio's beautiful musical thoughts, the music on this disc arose as did a deep friendship between the two of us.
Tulio doesn't lile to speak about his music, since music should speak for itself - and it truly does...
