"Yeshe's own singular voice was supple,like worn leather,and made for an earthy counterpoint to the otherwordly sound of the mbira".
The Village Voice-Canada
“Profoundly gentle - in the best sense of the word - evocative of Geoffrey Oryema's Exile."”
"This is brilliant African-sounding music from a multi-cultural percussionist with a wide open mind to all the globe's notes.... Yeshe modernizes and crosses geographic and musical boundaries like a Paul Simon in reverse....A Feast for music tourists"
"This is a debut album that’s been a long time coming, but well worth the wait......World Citizen has to be one of the more satisfying Aussie albums released so far this year."
The Tiki Lounge/Rhythms- Australia
"Yeshe's half whispered vocals and liquid Mbira Dzavadzimu creates an intimacy that makes you want to lean into the music."
"In World Citizen, Yeshe has created a world music disc chock-a-block of rhythms and melodies that are magnificently evocative; you'll sway and dance all the way through this one. It plays a little like your own personal folk festival."

You find your self immersed in a release of beauty and grace...
Discover the beauty!!!!"

striking compatibility and resonance. A true gem in our world music category."
