Dramatic diva with a haunting voice and stunning stage presence. For her second album, Daughter Of The Spring, singer Mor Karbasi explores roots: remembering and recalling childhood, parents, family, "the fire of" youth, first love, the search for true love and the passing on of wisdom and tradition through one's own family. "Mor Karbasi is one of the great young divas of the global music scene, alongside the likes of Mariza or Yasmin Levy. But Karbasi has her own, highly individual approach to the music and she sounds as dramatic as she looks, switching effortlessly from songs that mix flamenco and North African influences. Like many of the best new songs here, it was written by Karbasi herself, along with her impressive co-producer Joe Taylor. This is surely one of the albums of the year". THE GUARDIAN, April 25th 2008 **** (on previous album)
