Some press voices about us:

TheArtOfFusion, a band of European musicians led by Chilean-born Rafa Sotomayor, provided a riveting headlining set. With Sotomayor on the Hang (often referred to as Hang drum), this group unleashed the most potent sound to come out of this PIJF and left a lasting impression.“ –The Star

When Hang and Rafael Sotomayor got together, they knew the world is ready for what their music has in store. Stirring a wild following from the band’s exceptional, clever mergence of rhythms across the globe, get ready for a whole lot of afro-beat, latin rock and smooth as butter jazz from their set.“ -Time Out 

What makes the project so special is that no performance is the same. With different guest artists, such as dancers, visuals and different musicians we always experience a new combination.“   – Platform
