Sara Tavares live at the Barbican, London (May 2009):
Lusaphone lushness of Sara Tavares, who played instantly memorable songs from her new album Xinti, bright with ukulele and her own acoustic guitar. FINANCIAL TIMES - UK ****
World music 'goth father' Charlie Gillet said after her live gig in London for BBC 3 radio:
"I was bowled over by Sara Tavares' live performance, having already been bedazzled by her guitar playing during a session recorded for World on BBC 3 two days earlier."
"the songs Sara Tavares has written here are bursting with warmth."
THE SCOTSMAN - UK
"The title of the new album is 'Xinti' which means as much as 'Feel it'. It is no trouble at all to actualy do that. (...) We hear wonderful backing vocals, delicious light dialogues between percussion and drums, a camel walk on bass, moving guitar riffs, a flute or ukelele in teh distance and that o so clear, heavenish voice of Tavares. If you put on this record you'll be whisteling though your day before you know it." PAROOL - NL
"Xinti is Tavares best album sofar. The songs are more exciting and fuller. A solid atmosphere to sink away in."
MIXED MAGAZINE - NL

JAZZ MAGAZINE - NL*****
"Sara Tavares - Musical citizen of the world."
"Tavares' new album Xinti is a sensual record full of well woven rhythms, rich melodies and sensible singing. A jewel to fall in love with." DE PERS - NL
