"[VOŁOSI] is really in top form on this new album and offers an overwhelming listening experience. Enjoy global music without boundaries' - Jan Willem Broek, De Subjectivisten

"Playing fast, in musical terms, is the classical upbringing that makes it easier for musicians to achieve the phenomenon that it is, to sound controlled and not 'disappear' by centrifugal forces into the spatial musical abyss....
Playing slow on the contrary, it is primarily the profound knowledge of the heritage of the origins of folk traditions that musicians can control and lyrically master the centripetal musical force. I witnessed and admired those VOLOSI skills in a live radio recording in Budapest and I can never forget it. "200 Weeks Ago" and especially "Pendulum" are another perfect example. They just keep getting better and better!" -  Giorgos Markakis ERT- Radio / Channel 3 - Greece

"200 Weeks Ago is an album that immediately grabs you by the throat and then gets better and better - an addictive record. You have been warned!" - Holly Moors, Moors Magazine
