"The most haunting music that I have heard this year is “Matanë Malit” (“Beyond the Mountain”) on ECM."
"You don't have to understand Albanian to appreciate what's happening here: Starting with somber and often heavy music, Duni and her group wind up in a soaring, graceful realm all their own."
"An album that grabs hold of the head and heart so insidiously that it's almost impossible to let it go, Matanë Malit will hopefully introduces Duni and her superb group to the broader international audience they so richly deserve."
"This quartet definitely sounds like rising star material for ECM".
"An adventurous ensemble that here restrics to framing stark outlines for this mesmerizing album."
"Once you enter into the enchanted sound world of "Matanë Malit", it's impossible to break free from it's spell"
