Music is a language. It is also a bridge which brings us into contact
with feelings, events, people and ideas with another way being.

In the arts there is a language, which all humans understand, a language without words.

JP Jofre:
"It's a great honor to be part of this unique album that features some of my favorite composers. Now's days is very hard to find albums with diverse styles of contemporary-tonal music, but in this case, the Transatlantic Ensemble did a wonderful work in the selection of the works and the performance is excellent."

Miguel del Aguila:
“I just finished listening to my Silence from your new Havana Moon CD; and both my friend and I were in tears by the beginning of the coda. Your interpretation is so beautifully moving, lyrical, refined, deep and most of all the feelings and expression of the music sound so sincere. … as if you two are alone seating somewhere in the dark, improvising absentmindedly whatever comes to mind... my favorite type of performances. Bravo Evelyn Ulex and Mariam Adam, you’ve got a hit!

Nocturne sounds beautiful, very lyrical and introspective. Tango Trio sounds fun and dramatic as you captured so well all the passion, melodrama and sultriness of this piece. Thank you for this amazing recording of my works and all other excellent tracks on the Havana Moon album.”

Review: Midwest Records

If you can't put your finger on what's going on here the reason is because this sounds like some of your grandpa's old Masterworks records that trended toward the exotic side. ...
