Seiva, a trio that only uses portuguese traditional instruments and combines them with electricity and electronics, making the Portuguese roots gain a whole new meaning.

(...)" oica-se Seiva com a urgência das coisas inadiáveis e deixe-se correr a seiva com que as suas canções nos vivificam, revitalizam". Armando Carvalheda- Antena 1 ( PT)

(...)" Seiva - música tradicional portuguesa mas com um pó de modernidade." Nuno Rogeiro - Sic Noticias (PT)

(...)" uma maior "portugalidade instrumental" com Vasco Casais a ir mais longe na exploração sónica de instrumentos tradicionais portugueses como o cavaquinho e a viola braguesa, (...) é evolução com certeza." António Pires - Blitz (PT)

(...)" der einfallsreiche Gitarrist Vasco Ribeiro Casais und die starke Sängerin Joana Negrão. (...) Folk auf der Hohe der Zeit, mit starken Melodien und noch besseren Arrangements, regional verankert". Christian Rath - Folker (DE)
