"Carmen has become, in a few years, a reference in the Cape Verdean music. "Kachupada" smells of sounds and spices of the archipelago, and enchants us with its inimitable musical universe. It is the Cape Verdean sounds that Carmen combines effectively with jazz. " Kadha Cissoko, NOUVELLE VAGUE-FR
"Between the 'sodade' of the Cape Verdean melodies and the playful scat acrobatics inherited from Ella Fitzgearld, Carmen Souza is a craftswoman of Jazz and world fusion that avoids tiresome clichés of the genre." QOBUZ-FR
"The Cape-verdean singer transcends the traditional music of her country" VIBRATIONS MAGAZINE-FR
