"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


"STARTLINGLY GOOD"

Ian Anderson, fRoots Magazine on MORTISSA


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

Delarue, New York Music Daily


"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

 

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

Cerys Matthews, BBC Radio 6


"...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


 "...haunting vocals.”

Giles Woodforde, Oxford Times


"...This isn’t just a great record from London musicians, but a release of international significance." 

Simon Broughton on 'Mortissa', Evening Standard 


Dear Friends, 

 

I hope you have had a great holiday season and the new year brings joy and peace of mind to you. 

 

Last year I had the pleasure of sharing my stories with you in different parts of the world, which was beautiful. This year there will be more...I have updated my upcoming 'Mortissa' concerts list with the confirmed  ones so far. For my concerts with She'koyokh please visit here.

 

I am also very excited about the new projects on the way but more on this soon!! 

 

I'd also like to thank Jamie Renton for the lovely interview on fRoots Magazine's December issue. It was great to look back and talk about how things have evolved since my album launch in 2013. If you'd like to read the interview, you can order the magazine  here

 

I am still working on my website; soon I will add photos and videos from my tours in Europe and UK last year; but meanwhile you can have a glimpse at the video below to get a taste of our latest sound. Hope you enjoy it. 

 

Happy New Year

Cigdem
