“I have to say if this is entirely from you then you have a tremendous gift. The tones are magical. The melodies are enchanting. Your attention to details say much about you.....beautiful sounds....I am touched:)”

“You are remarkable! Your music reminds me of the elemental forces, the woods and fires at night. Thank you for sharing your music with the world!”

“You are the missing link between Dead Can Dance and modern Tribal Shamanic renaissance. You are the new generation of trans-tribal music!!”

Lola Zola - Facebook

“You have reminded me of a world that I have been away from for too long. It has been so long that the path is probably overgrown ... but that'll make the journey there all the more enticing.”

“If you're looking to hear music that is magical, well produced and written, then "Sverdet (The sword)," is just the album that will take you on an enchanted voyage with its rich textures and sounds.”

Diane - RadioIndy

“For my next blog, I 'interviewed' a musician friend of mine who has literally done so much work for other people he can't tell you how many times he's been recorded. That isn't boasting on his part, it's simply the truth.”

“The brilliant musical score (written for the titled play by Vera Henriksen), "Sverdet (The sword)," by extremely talented musical composer, Kjell Braaten, takes the listener on a musical journey of a valiant Viking and his sword during the Viking/Medieval times. This set of tracks features unusual instrumentals (drums, sarangi, didgeridoo, and jewharps) which collectively entwine creating a beautiful CD of superbly mastered World music.”

Diane - RadioIndy

“Your style is like musical mythology. It helps transcend us to other times and places....Thank you for creating such beautiful magic!”
