"Çigdem Aslan leads the vocal line like a Turkish trobairitz. What a voice!

From deep Billie Holiday notes to great emotional crescendos containing all the heartbreak of the world, you cannot take your eyes or ears off of her." 
                                                                                   Letham Nights Review, 8th March 2019

 

'Çiğdem Aslan, la chanteuse qui transgresse les genres et les frontières'   Arte TV 


"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

 

"Mesmerising sequel to her fabulous debut."  fRoots, 2016

 

"Cigdem Aslan is not only a great presence on London's music scene but across Europe....now she sounds so much more confident and assured."*****

                                                            Simon Broughton, Evening Standard, 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


“...Her warm, friendly, open personality permeates the music she makes as well as the way she interacts with the world...”   fRoots

 

"...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

 

"...she is both a lioness and nightingale"  Evening Standard, 2013
 

"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

Historical Site of Chellah

 

I am very happy to be returning to Magazine Festival this year. 

The first time I performed there was in 2014 soon after I had released my debut album Mortissa.

The stage was at the historical site of Chellah which was simply magical with the storks flying above me as I sang. This time I am taking my Balkan music band She'koyokh there and looking forward to singing with the storks again!
