Elisabeth Kontomanou
Biography__Music__Website

“… a strong and metallic voice … sounds that take their roots in a jazzy ground flavoured with soul and other brasilian fragrances. Set up with original compositions … this recording is one of great emotions where the structure essentially serves the heart. … with things as they are, she is the most inspired
of all.”
- Alain Brunet, La Presse

"…Elisabeth Kontomanou’s voice [is] one of the most profound that you can hear on this side of the Atlantic … more than convincing original compositions … fresh arrangements and a rare spontaneity … since her return to Europe, she became THE great voice of this continent!"
- Thierry Quénum, Jazz Magazine
