BOI AKIH Storyteller selected showcase WOMEX 21

WOMEX21 Porto

“Storyteller is a wonderfully resonant blend of cultures and textures which hails traditions and innovations alike. Akihary and Brouwer have always shown deep respect for tradition but know, too, that without evolution there is stagnation. Above all, however, the music is a tale of ingenuity, loss, resilience and, ultimately, of triumph.” (All About Jazz)

“Released right at the end of 2020, Boi Akih’s newest album Storyteller could just sneak in as the best album of this year, or already be a contender for the most innovative CD of 2021.”

“Storyteller is replete with musical tales that are exciting and emotionally charged, but also enchanting, theatrical, dignified and even solemn. Ten world stories brought together on an imaginative CD, with a sumptuous range of music that will easily last you a whole year!” (Music Frames)
