Inside La Cumbia Lounge
Music Story  August 18, 2006, by Belinda Acosta
"...Few "civilians" have seen the inside of La Cumbia Lounge, Michael Ramos' Lake Austin studio and the incubator for his two spectacular Charanga Cakewalk albums. The way Ramos fearlessly bends music traditions, one might expect La Cumbia Lounge to resemble a mad scientist's lab – a cross between a wacky Mexican restaurant and an itinerant musician's landfill...."

"...10pm, Club 115 As one of Austin's most prolific sidemen, keyboardist/accordionist Michael Ramos has gone from backing John Mellencamp and the BoDeans to scoring PBS programs and indie films. With Charanga Cakewalk, Ramos moves outside traditional Spanish-language music with worldly sophistication, urban quirk, and Continental flair, hence the "Dirty Cumbia." – Margaret Moser Scott H..."

Charanga Cakewalk
Music Review  November 18, 2011, by Raoul Hernandez
"...As third album overall and first in five years for Charanga Cakewalk, El Brown Recluse takes its double entendre to heart. A multi-instrumentalist of all-star repute, Michael Ramos is the CC moniker's piñata-maker with a baseball bat, and El Brown Recluse swats it out of the park..."

Charanga Cakewalk
Record review
Music Review  May 12, 2006, by Belinda Acosta
"...From start to finish, it delivers a jaw-dropping rhyme of memory, spirit, and clear-eyed reality. While Michael Ramos – Cakewalk's master musician – leans toward electrified cumbias, here he dabbles with a variety of Latin rhythms, bending, zapping, and shape-shifting to create a blazingly distinctive sound..."

Split Decision
A documentary so modest it doesn't include narration, Marcy Garriott's Split Decision is nonetheless an engaging and moving account of boxer Jesus Chavez's (as of yet) unsuccessful battle with the...
Film Review  February 9, 2001, by Marrit Ingman
"...And Garriott also fills in human detail with light strokes, as in a surprisingly intimate, relaxed sequence in which Chavez and his family dance the night away. Joel Guzmán's original music performed by noted regional artists (among them, David Grissom and Michael Ramos) adds atmosphere but is nicely restrained..."

Gina Chavez
Music Review  February 14, 2014, by Nina Hernandez
"...Working with $20,000 in Kickstarter funds, Chavez melds perfectly pop opener "Save Me" with reggae ("Siete-D") and hypnotic, bilingual cumbias ("Miles de Millas," "Gotta Get"). Enlisting veteran local studio genius Michael Ramos (Patty Griffin; his Charanga Cakewalk) results in a flawlessly bilingual balance between South American, Mexican, and American influences..."
