'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
