QUAMUNDOS REVIEW @Rootstime.be

"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.

A true narration of the music that punctuates the universe of Theo Pascal. From Angola to India via Mozambique and Cape Verde, Quamundos2 merges rhythms....An energetic album.....

"...The Portuguese-inspired jazz combines elements from Latin jazz and, especially in the rhythm area, from world music. The drums and percussion area in particular is enormously complex and offers the other musicians a secure yet extremely varied foundation on which the music, generated by enormous presence, can then unfold its charm freely.
