WORLD MUSIC CHARTS EUROPE - AUG/SET 2022 - POSITION #15 / ENTRIES AT JAZZWEEK USA RADIO CHART (15 WEEKS)

“A bubbling cosmos of sound that never overflows, but is beautifully structured and invites you to exciting listening adventures.”

Christoph Giese // virgin-jazz-face.de // DE

“His Lusophone jazz is a special sound in which both the folk tradition and the originality of jazz textures are neatly intertwined. On the one hand, Theo Pascal's music is an expression of what is the pulse of today's multicultural art, on the other hand, the artist does not avoid ethnic motives, including songs sung in the Kimbund- Angolan dialect."
Dionizy Piątkowski // Era Jazzu //PL

"From Angola to India via Mozambique and Cape Verde, Quamundos2 merges rhythms....An energetic album, that grooves, pulsates, and swings. If it is commonly accepted that music is already a journey in itself, we still love when we make it travel as Theo Pascal does majestically in this album."
J-Jacques Dikongué  // tribune2lartiste.com //FR

"...a beautiful mix where all the sounds are perfectly distinguished without colliding with each other. This is one of the albums that will always be referenced in my CD collection."
Jaime Bingre Amaral //
Rádio Universidade de Coimbra // PT

"It's danceable jazz with a lot of world music and very unique. A terrific album." 
Fredi Hallauer // Musikglobal // DE

"His bass playing is nothing less than spectacular, even if it is kept sober for once: every note the man plays is completely “spot on”: nothing too much, nothing too little and above all: he possesses the ability as a bass player to the fullest." 
Dani Heyvaert // Rootstime.be // BE

"Theo Pascal is one of the most gifted bassists on the planet. His mastery of notes is impressive, his command of an expressive elasticity shapes these notes. His pizzicato technique is virtuoso as is his con arco playing. Stark timbers define his playing especially in his continuo. Quaver octaves are clean and dramatically stressed from fz to p. Implicit in this is a sense of pleading which could turn on a dime to reflective nobility. His performance here is shaped by this kind of iridescence that is simply hard to find these days. It is truly a pity that he is not better known. His compositions and overall musicianship is very hard to find and when combined with the utter beauty of his virtuosity he becomes the rarest of rare commodities." Raul da Gama, Epistola review, theworldmusicreport.com, CA
