 "An impressive return"  **** 

                                          Robin Denselow on 'A Thousand Cranes', The Guardian, 2016 

 

"Aslan's voice is supple and powerful, never straining and without affectation. The interplay of the musicians behind her is, at times, breathtaking. Nobody's showing off but everyone shines."

                                                Jamie Renton on 'A Thousand Cranes', fRoots Magazine, 2016

 

"Absolutely stunning stuff...it is so infectious"

Cerys Matthews, BBC Radio 6, 2014

 

"Aslan’s voice is rich, earthy and penetrating, as sweet as a watermelon and as strong as a demitasse of coffee at mid afternoon." 

George W. Harris, Jazz Weekly, 2014

 

"...Aslan's unaccompanied vocal introduction is so perfect it's bewitching; beautiful, mysterious, vibrant, haunting, evocative—her voice is all these and more..." 

Chris M. Slawecki, All About Jazz, 2014

 

"It’s haunting, plaintive, rivetingly emotional stuff..."

Delarue, New York Music Daily, 2013

 

"Aslan possesses the smokiness that marks a true Rembetiko singer: You can get lost in the sound of her voice. One of the 5-must-hear albums of the year" 

Anastasia Tsioulcas, NPR, 2013

 

"On stage Aslan is a fresh, natural and relaxed performer with a beautiful voice. Her facility to slip from Greek to Turkish and several other languages is a real asset."
                                                                       
Simon Broughton, Songlines Magazine, 2010

@ La Mègisserie, St-Junien (FR)

« C’est au Rébétiko, à la fois grec et turc que Cigdem Aslan redonne vie, somptueusement et fidèlement,dans ce magnifique album. L’artiste nous chante dans les deux langues, grecque et turque,des chansons traditionnelles, mais aussi des compositions qui reprennent les thèmes usuels du Rébétiko, […] le goût du hashish et de la boisson, les femmes libres qui préfèrent chanter dans les cabarets que se marier, l’éloge des hors-la-loi […]. Un disque exceptionnel, où d’excellents musiciensentourent, en un écrin de sonorités orientales chatoyantes, la voix chaleureuse de la jeune artisteturque. »

Sami Sadak, Babel Med
