"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


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, 


My debut album 'Mortissa' is selected by Songlines editors Jo Frost and Simon Broughton as one of the 50 greatest albums of the last five years!!! 

I'd like to thank everyone who has contributed to the making of Mortissa...

You can see the whole list here...

2013 te çıkardığım ilk solo albümüm Mortissa, İngiltere'nin sayılı dünya müziği dergilerinden Songlines editörleri tatafından son beş yılın en iyi 50 albümü arasında seçildi!!
