”Tucan Tucan, a delicious South American Music bird Seasoned with African Spices. Put simply, the music of Tucan Tucan is a delightful, amorphous mixture that refuses to be compartmentalized… Who said Ubuntu is Dead? If it is, then Tucan Tucan has just resurrected it!” – Richard Nwamba- Sawubona Magazine (July, 2009).
 
The desire of Muriel Marco from Argentina and Frank Paco from Mozambique / South Africa to unite and fuse different styles of music, resulted in the launch of Tucan Tucan.
