Alex Pertout is a wonderful percussionist and Nilusha Dassenaike is a
beautiful singer, as 'Alex & Nilusha' they have written some wonderful music
together for a new cd and I was very glad to have had an opportunity
to contribute to it. Thank you very much!

'Tales To Tell' is just great! I must have played 'Falling' 100 times,
it always puts me in a good mood. Great tune and great mix!
Contemporary jazz and world music at it's best!

KARL JURMAN musical director The Lion King Broadway

I really like the work you are realising, the traditional versions are well developed
and the original pieces I like a lot. I enjoyed the variety and the great balance
you are presenting. Nilusha has a beautiful voice, excellent work!

ROMAN PELLADITO HERNANDEZ legendary Cuban master drummer, educator

The rhythms by Alex are very exciting, they are taking me on a tour around the world in an ethnically authentic way. Deep and touching while funky and groovy, appropriate to every song and bringing an addictive sound that I have to listen to day after day, one melting pot that is delicious to the heart of rhythm lovers. Nilusha's voice, which I hear now for the first time is ‘pure velvet’,  warm, loving, emotionally captivating, musically enchanting and soul touching. Well done Alex & Nilusha!

compassionate music with deep expression always moves people to a
higher level, Nilusha and Alex did just that.
