"...the fascinating voice of Ravid Kahalani brilliantly evokes the musical universe of his ancestors ... it winds through West African blues and the thousand and one vibrations of the Sahara, Nubian, Gnawi, Touaregs, Saidi and Bambara."
"...luscious mix of jazz tonalities, which also crosses into funk, rings out as an ode to to African grooves and a modern echo of the ancestral rhythms. Ravid Kahalani creates a canvas printed both with deep emotions when his rasping laments tear open the heavens, but also with popular jubilation when the percussions, the oud, the cello and the brass instruments interweave in a harmonious dance that is complex and resolutely modern."
