"Thank you Arthur for bringing out the best in people; true rhythms, alchemy, fun, games, your playfulness, spirit, and wisdom. My biggest learning: I got the music in me, and I can share it. I do not have to be an expert."

—Fotunato Silva, Portugal



"The group was so full of positive energy…When I trust the group's energy and groove, then I'm able to naturally step out of the way. When the ryhthm is in the heart rather than the brain, my decision to get out of the way is an intuitive move."

—Tomoko Yokota, Japan
