“I am very impressed and Ensemble Baklava has sent me on journeys into my past, visiting the Bosphoros passing in the mist... living by and on the Mediterranean for years - in a boat - scents and wonderful vibrant markets of food and spices and subtle smoked pipes - a cacaphonia of engaged words you understand and the ones you just imagine... the smells that take you into heaven and the music that make you cry and dance at the same moment! The love that just feels so alive, and when or if it passed - life and passion is still alive in the art and deep at heart! Thank You - your music is passion!”
Nathilde Overrein Rapp, manager Jellyfish Productions
“I loved the gig! It felt like a timeless, effortless flow with great tunes taking me sometimes into a different time.. while closing my eyes I could feel the beautiful flow of the instruments guiding me into an inner journey during some songs.. other songs were joyous and infectious to move to and although there was not a dancing crowd in the cafe this evening, I had the strong urged to move to the music… Besides the general feel of the gig I must appreciate the expertise these four artist bring into their gig.. playing all instruments superbly with amazing solo's. I feel every musician in the band is very, very skilful playing the instrument they handle... I enjoyed this gig very much and will definitely return!”
“Thanks so much to Baklava for a wonderful evening. We all loved it especially at the Bread and Roses which was an ideal funky setting. Brilliant night!”
“I really enjoyed my first encounter with Baklava! I was really impressed with such musical virtuosity and verve and would have loved to have heard you somewhere I could really have appreciated the wonderful music you were all creating. Let me know when you will be appearing at the next local Greek Taverna then we can all join in and dance to show our appreciation for Baklava!”
