"...A sampling of all the diverse musical traditions that exist in the Americas and beyond... melodious rhythms with an exuberant, non-stop level of energy... Viva Quetzal's brand of music is more than eclectic or rhythmic, it's spiritual, it's all cultures existing as one. That's universal music!"

Rafael Charres, Cashbox Magazine (NYC)


"Sunday [was] a phenomenal night... with Viva Quetzal celebrating the release of their brand-new CD, Hijos Del Sol (Signature Sounds), one of the finest of '98 so far, blowing away younger, poppier bands I've seen address these styles... Destroyin' 'em, matter of fact. Viva Quetzal's Americanos are seasoned and heavy, heavy players -- college faculty and touring vets all 'round. .... There's Saya, from the Andean region of Bolivia, Venezuelan Golpe Tucuyano, Ecuadorian Sanjuanito beats. Latino jazz-rock fusion keeps a contemporary ear tuned, and the swing is undeniable. Can't fake verve, and this new record has tons. Spot-on summertime listening..."

Michael Caito, Aural Overload, Providence Phoenix Review
