“Glauber Rocha is one of the greatest talents of the new generation of Brazilian guitarists. With a precise technique, an unusual musicality and a clear pure sound Glauber is a differentiated artist who knows how to explore the sonority of the instrument like few others. I am sure he is soon going to be recognized as one of the greatest guitarists in the country.”  - Marcelo Kayath
