"PC Muñoz is an artist that knows no boundaries. His output straddles myriad genres, influences and art forms. From funk to classical, pop to hip-hop, experimental to jazz, globally-renowned artists in all these realms consider Muñoz a first-call percussionist, producer, composer, and songwriter.

"I imagine PC Muñoz broadcasting his songs and poems in the post-apocalypse: a loving badass wanderer documenting matters of love and devastation, history by heartbeat. He stops to taste the earth, buy a faded lottery ticket with no chance to win, looking not backwards but forwards for the ancestors. Lend him your ears: there is no better use for them."

"PC Muñoz is not like other drummers. Sure, he makes his drums waltz and tango; and also performs a myriad of other dances on his drums. But he can also make the instrument do what it has done for ages: he can make them talk. One will be awestruck at how the calculated and the primordially elemental comes together in a songful manner. Mr Muñoz (is) a fascinating percussion colourist and a very astute manipulator of rhythmic textures…each percussion instrument when beaten, stroked and caressed seems to recite its own poetry…"

"There's a reason why we keep bringing PC Muñoz and his ensembles back to perform year after year. PC is a musical mastermind with an agenda: exploring the totality of funk and blues, and digging into the locations where they intersect other parts of the culture in the most compelling ways. At a recent show, PC and his group  electrified the crowd by walking that elusive line between laser-focused intricacy and the loose, rangy freedom of the groove. Stripped down yet never simple, his work decodes the world's secret messages and delivers them to the gut, the heart, and the mind."

"Dark, sexual, sensual, confessional, and confrontational--all at the same time...a poet."
