by Lotz Of Music Meets Batá Drums

  • “With Lotz Of Music, ‘World Music’ turns into something magical.” (Pianowereld, The Netherlands)
  • “This is not just an exotic flirt but a real organic fusion.” (De Volkskrant, The Netherlands)
  • “A boundless variety of inspiring polyphony and subtle swing. An impressive amalgamation of jazz, popular music and Afro Cuban folklore in almost symphonic arrangements.” (De Gooi- en Eemlander, The Netherlands)

  • “After listening to Lotz Of Music the listener is left lots of joy.” (Nieuwsblad v.h. Noorden, The Netherlands)
  • “Everything is performed with very natural musicality and playfullness. This is no tasteless eclecticism or cheap exotism but classy Jazz music.” (Entr’acte, The Netherlands)
  • “Lotz Of Music ends up with a statement that is somewhat schizophrenic: at some point its wide ranging proclivities make it kind of diffuse but most of it is extremely fascinating. All the musicians play with great skill and energy throughout. Invigorating and fascinating.” (Cadence, USA)
  • “The cultural diversity does not fall apart into a unhomogenous mixture of styles but is presented here as a consistent, organic whole, combined with a pretty sense of humor. (Slagwerkkrant, The Netherlands)
  • “This is no jazz with Cuban invluences or vice versa but a beautiful amalgamation of two styles of music.” (Man, The Netherlands)
  • “Their interpretations of the religious folklore differ much from common interpretations of Afro Cuban Music: Instead of demonstrating technical powerplay in a tasteless show they manage to perform in a mystical, sacral sphere while the music still maintains the sound of jazz!” (Entr’acte, The Netherlands)
