"Cassio Duarte is my first call for all percussion instruments! In a recent production for Brenda Russell and Patti Austin, I asked him to perform all the percussion instruments in his own studio - and these tracks shine!  Recording quality and musical performance were, as usual, five stars! I am surely going to ask him to add the pulse and groove to my next project. Cassio's sensitivity and musicality, along with his superb attitude, speaks for itself."

Stephan Oberhoff, Composer, Music Producer for Melissa Manchester, Brenda Russell, Patti Austin and others

"Cassio Duarte is one of the most musical percussionists I 've ever worked with. He has the ability to drive a track with amazing energy, while still capturing the subtle nuances of the music."
Bill Brendle, Composer, Arranger, Musical Director/Producer (Sambaguru, Sergio Mendes, Maria de Barros, and others)


"Working with Cassio over the internet was a breeze.  I got the conga
parts I needed, a quality sound, and a really great performance."

“ Cassio is full of groove(s) and his dynamics are very musical.
We worked together many times and he’s always been very creative and made sure he recorded the best sound”
