Anna Riveiro is one of the most characteristic vocalists in Poland. A unique, warm, oriental-colored voice and a variety of musical inspirations allow her to take a special place in the Polish and world music scene.
Jazz Forum, The European Jazz Magazin, 2013
 
Sometimes the concord of the voice with different timbres of instruments seemed to be an intimate conversation but at other times – it was like an energetic volcano in the middle of the synagogue, which moved the numerous public…
Remarkable vocal possibilities of Anna Riveiro and the artistry of accompanying musicians were a real feast for the amateurs of original music.prawdziwą ucztę miłośnikom oryginalnych brzmień.

FRAGMENTS OF THE CD’S REVIEWS

LUNAS OLVIDADAS – Sephardic songs
Sephardic songs interpreted by Anna Jagielska-Riveiro have preserved a bit of Jewish nostalgy, Spanish passion and Oriental sensuality. They allow you to submerge in the magic of the Orient for a moment, for one hour… for the whole life?
A warm soprano makes us think about medieval Spain, towns of Andalusia with their narrow streets, synagogues and minarets. Unfortunatelly, it is a forgotten world…
Polska The Times nr 41, 2009
 
…es un placer dejarse llevar por la voz melíflua de Jagielska-Riveiro y las emotivas notas de sus músicos. Digamos que “carga las pilas” y nos reconcilia con el mundo.
…it is a real pleasure to submerge in the warm voice of Anna Jagielska-Riveiro and listen to the pieces passionately played by accompanying musicians. This CD „charges your batteries” and reconciles you with the world…
Rafael Robles, 2009

DOS AMANTES – Sephardic songs at the SIMCHA Festival 2011
Thanks to the unique timbre of the artist’s voice and magnificent vocal ornaments I will remember this concert for a long time…
Michał Wojtowicz
 
The whole group, with incredible passion, infected the public with positive energy. A rhythm section, which excellently complemented each other, a selective clarinet that completed the piece, an ethereal, temperamental guitar and an expressive oud – all these instruments created a balanced accompaniment for the singer’s voice to sound perfect.
Dorota Romanowska

DOS AMANTES – Sephardic songs
In the music of Anna Jagielska-Riveiro resounds the truth, hot sand crunches, dry wind of the Iberian Peninsula brings tears to your eyes…

CANTOS DE LA ESPANA ANTIGUA – Songs of Ancient Spain
Combining this repertoire with a harpsichord may seem surprising, particularly in case of Sephardic music, but it is a really good choice. A clear „white” voice of Anna Jagielska is excellently matched with improvisations and oustanding playing of Toporowski.
