Absolutely loved working Sandro! He really understood what I was going for! Thank you, Sandro!!!
Another fun session with Sandro! For this project I asked Sandro to video record himself performing some of the parts from our last recording session so I could edit together a track breakdown video for a social media post. He was 100% happy to do it and delivered quickly!
Very quick to deliver and did an amazing job first try! It was nice working with Sandro, I recommend! :)
Sandro did great work -
It was so fun and engaging working with Sandro. We recorded the Didgeridoo, Fujara, and the Zurna, all of which he played expertly! Sandro was so open-minded about pushing these instruments to different extremes to get interesting sound effects. Great session and experience!
Tarogato improvisations. Everything's very well played, I had multiple recordings to choose from, recording quality is great, communication and delivery we're fast.

Sandro was really helpful during the process, his recording was excellent and he delivered very fast - couldn't be happier with the results. Five stars!
Sandro -PowerFlute - Is a consummate professional, able to play and interpret a score to perfection, he can also improvise and bring new life to a track.
Sandro did a great and very quick job of composing and playing a tin whistle piece. He's super easy to work with and I would collaborate with him again any time.
Sandro gave beautiful renditions in Flute and Clarinet for my song for the movie Vellai Pookal.
