"Lyambiko's voice has me head over heels. Her first disc, last year's Out of This Mood, left me stunned. Her interpretations of old standards, her emotive phrasings, and her delicious German accent sounded so revealing and alluring. And it didn't hurt that her talented rhythm section swung tastefully."

Lyambiko - 2005 - Lyambiko

"Lyambiko draw from classic sounds and rich jazz tradition, and then infuse their own cross-cultural ingredients gained from their personal musical and life journeys to create a music that is direct and honest, exotic yet accessible, soulful and spirited. Their appeal spans generations of music lovers and captivates the casual and the committed listener alike.

I have seen it with my own eyes and heard it with my own ears. I have seen and heard it through the eyes and ears of perfect friends and perfect strangers. It is about being captured and transported, mind over body, on a transcendent journey to places that make one smile and cry and feel emotions that humans naturally try to suppress in our meager daily existences. Open your ears and your heart, and Lyambiko will move you, too."

Mark Levitan, Carlisle, Massachusetts USA
