"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. He's also an artist with a deep social conscience -- one who uses music to connect cultures and communities together."

Anil Prasad, Innerviews


"...artfully arranged acoustic and synthesized sounds from a highly inventive artist... will move listeners and inspire musicians to seek new sources of sounds and inspiration."

Barbara Schultz, Electronic Musician


"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."

Bao Phi, 2018 Caldecott Medal winner, award-winning poet/spoken-word artist


"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…"

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

Performing Songwriter


"Somewhere between hip-hop attitude, Minneapolis nasty and Latin Rock playa chops, PC Muñoz has an instantly compelling sound that defies definition..."

Rickey Vincent, author of Funk: The Music, The People, and The Rhythm of the One;  host of KPFA's "The History of Funk" radio show


"(PC Muñoz)  is truly a modern musician, equally at home with a live band, playing the most organic of instruments...or hunched over a computer, making beats and working magic with ProTools..."

Tom Chandler, East Bay Express


"Great work. It's all too rare to hear someone breaking new ground in the pop field."

John Zorn, Composer/Iconoclast


"... PC Muñoz consistently redefine(s) himself, sailing effortlessly across artistic categories..."

Marian Liu,  San José Mercury News


"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."
