The sea, the sea

My review
The music, a gift for the ears. The artist, a gift to music.

nit wit

hairy but good...

Dan Gaynor

I'm proud to be part of such a fine production.
Martin has written some beautiful and memorable songs. His carefully-crafted presentations of his songs, performing, recording, singing nearly everything is both impressive and expressive. Also, he sings pretty good for a darn drummer. Buy the record!


Great to see his hard work pay off!

Gil Brovar

A refreshing, original artist. I hope to hear more of his music for years to come. Great CD!!!

seth bateman

He speaks fluent Peruvian too!
If I was a butterfly sitting on a leaf and Martin was playing music, i would fly over and sit on his shoulder. Love the sounds thanks for making this lovely Music!

Versatility of a tallented musician / composer
Always good to hear the music of a wonderful talent. The variety of the album's sound is light and refreshing, displaying a depth and harmony that can fit any mood. It's a great album to play all day. Moliendo Cafe always gets my feet tapping. My favorite tracks are Latin / Peruvian influenced. Looking forward to hearing more from Martin.


Amazing musician- glad to see his work finally done!
Martin Zarzar is one of those musicians you don't quickly forget. His music is astoundingly beautiful. Love his new CD, looking forward to hear more; In Due TIme is simply amazing.

cat in the hat

great first album
i'm quite impressed with this collection of mostly original songs in several languages... it's rare to hear such continuity and coherence in such a diverse work. i look forward to more.


Amazingly diverse music with a wide range of expressive emotions. Very creative and exquisite indeed.
