Joao Sousa I just love João Pais Filipe relation to rhythm, there is no drumming like his drumming. I really appreciate the fact that he's the manufacturer of his sound, he works on his woods, he makes his cymbals, and I strongly believe that gives a completely new form to the music he makes.

Jakub Knera The titles define the groove of individual pieces, which often come from distant worlds: “XI” is typical for the Middle East, and “V” for Turkey or the Balkans. Filipe, however, does not play ethnically, nor does he delve into ornamentation. It seems that the most important thing for him is the repetitiveness of the pattern and small ambient outlines in the background, often interestingly painted with gong strikes.
