Reviews of Haran

"The spiritual kid sister of Ofra Haza checks in with something that’s Jewish but sure ain’t Klezmer.  ...Wild stuff that plays with abandon and is sure to grab your ears." – Midwest Record

"Turkish hash bars meet Hasidic Brooklyn juke joints with ‘70’s era psych rock well in tow." - J-Sin, Smother

"...intricately detailed, inventive and endlessly surprising."
— David Honigmann; Financial Times, London

Reviews of exile

"On Exile, their latest platter, their fusion (traditional Middle Eastern sounds and American folk-rock/pop) has been darn near perfected, with all the elements of old and new world sounds and styles revfined into a nearly seamless, individual voice...."

"Village Voice's Best Middle East Peace Plan.... On their new 'exile', earlier haunting traditionals give way to echoes of Holy Land disharmony in lamentations of placelessness and timely crises of faith...."
—Adam McGovern, Village Voice
