"Sahmaoui's exploration of the Gnawa Cosmos is some of the best gnawa you will hear... The trip of a lifetime."
Tim Cumming - The Independent
"Sahmaoui makes gnawa melodies sound like real songs, yearningly sung with starl and spacey electric arrangements."
"Updates of ancient tradition come no classier than this innovative album from Morocco's Sahmaoui..."
Neil Spencer - The Observer
"There is not only passion aplenty but a lifetime of curiosity and learning on this debut album."
Andy Morgan - Songlines
"The album is an intoxicating affair, visceral and groove-centric yet also nuanced and multilayered."
