“When Vission Latina recorded the Album entitled "Kitikimba pa' ti" in 2003, Saúl Sierra-Alonso, Marco Diaz, Oscar Autie, and I traveled to Mexico City to meet the horns players. Oscar was the Recording Engineer, and we recorded 9 songs in 11 hours. The rest of the album was recorded in Oscar’s studio. Everyone who participated in that album was so impressive! Oscar is an Engineer with a lot of experience, and I highly recommend him.”
