"Canalón de Timbiquí was the revelation of the entire conference-festival..it's the most uplifting, earthy sound you'll ever hear. I went to their performance and I was in tears, I was blown away by the energy, by the excitement, by the passion. It's infectious music that you have to see to be able to enjoy it."
-Betto Arcos, NPR
“I couldn’t think of the last time I had seen four middle-aged women fronting a band – languorous and entirely self-possessed as they swathed the rolling thunder of the men behind them in beautiful, keening harmonies.”
-Tom Horan, The Guardian
"I have to admit it's the music of the Pacific coast that most appeals to me. It's strongly African in character, with vocals underpinned by an interplay of hands and sticks on wood and leather and often a balafon-like marimba in the band.”
-Simon Broughton, Songlines Magazine.
