AllMusic Review by

Yannatou is a wonderful singer, with a rich, sensual voice and a masterful gift for interpretation. This collection finds her sampling songs from Greece, Sicily, Tunisia, and the Middle East into an exotic and beautiful whole. She is backed by the Primevera en Salonico Ensemble, who utilize such instrumentation as tamboura, kanonaki, daouli, and toubecki for an organic, honest recording.
