”I was treated to a powerful wave of the most unique amalgamation of sounds I have ever heard. With some mind-boggling arrangements and stellar playing, it was no surprise that Garizim returned for two encores!”
– Luke Kenny, Rolling Stone Magazine, Stockholm Jazz Festival 2015

”This is not what you might expect from a Swedish folk group, and in fact this is one of the most unexpected albums I have come across in 2016, but it’s also one of my favorites. Close your eyes and see what Garizim conjures for you.”
– Alex Monaghan, FolkWorld Reviews 2016

”It is so beautiful… This is an ensemble of finest kind…”
– Ulf Johansson, LIRA – Swedish Worldmusic Magazine 2015

”The overwhelming capstone by the trio Garizim after the concert still buzzing in my head… Sublime!! ”
