This was an amazing night of music.... Carolina is quite something on her ‘Mother Tongue’ recording but to see her perform live is to experience much more.
John Fenton, Jazz Local 32

"The result is stunning. The melodies and language may be unknown, but the sound is beautiful and haunting, the rhythms elusive yet strangely familiar and the performance throughout superb."
Winston Watusi, Weekend Sun
