Press

'..as a cellist-composer she morphs seamlessly from Stephane Grappelli like swing and Bird-like bebop...

a charming kaleidoscope and jazzy showcase of her global folk music-inspired compositions'

Jazzwise

'..some of the most inventive use of the cello I’ve heard for some time.'

Kind of Jazz

' a superb set -  a sound world that is at once rooted in the ancient and traditional  musics that it draws from in an utterly contemporary manner that also incorporates modern jazz. 

This is an exceptionally strong leadership debut from a lady that I'm sure we are destined to hear much more from.' Jazzviews

'Smarts playing is particularly remarkable..'

'Fascinating listening, and thought-provoking entertainment for the open-eared"
