“ For me to combine melodies together is like writing on a daily journal all of my moods. I record it, and after listening to them I begin to work on the ones that have greatly inspired me. That is why I feel more like a composer than as a guitarist. ”
Saro Tribastone

“ This music is very absorbing and for this listener it hit home on a very relaxing and spiritually invigorating level. I felt drawn instantly to the sound Saro creates and found myself listening to it over and over. ”
Keith “MuzikMan” Hannaleck

“ There's something about this music that just washes the troubles of the day away. Maybe it's because Flamenco music automatically sends the mind to thoughts of tropical climates and vacations. Whatever it may be, this music is a perfect mood enhancer. ”
