Haley Myers Listening to this album feels like reading a transportive poem or novel. Nathalie Joachim's voice, flute, and electronics with the Spektral Quartet create a mesmerizing sonic tapestry. Favorite track: Lamizé pa dous.

Ryan Conlan Richly woven, delicately surprising, ingeniously arranged, upliftingly beautiful and heartwarming. Traditional Haitian storytelling, inventively fused with orchestral and electronic sounds complementing Nathalie's beautiful singing, all constantly playing rhythmic, melodic counterpoint.

NJ is fantastic in the also-beautiful Eighth Blackbird, but to hear her step out and lead this sonically complete, wonderful album—wow. You never know what other beauty people have to offer the world. Favorite track: Madan Bellegarde.
