“Her multi-faceted talent uncontainable as she energetically bends music to her will and reshapes it with fascinating results."
- JAZZ IMPROV MAGAZINE
"vigorous, fresh, and totally unique composing voice."
- MANDOLIN MOMENTS

- TUCSON CITIZEN

PRESS

A bold composer, a brilliant pianist and an inventive vocalist all rolled into one, Clarice Assad floats freely across musical idioms, drawing on an array of sounds from Amazon forest wildlife to operatic arias. A classically-trained pianist, Assad is deeply rooted in the earthy, folkloric rhythms of Brazil, capturing the attention of international audiences with her stunning talent. The term "world music" is redundant when applied to her style, a reflection of Brazil's musical melting pot heritage of African rhythms mixed with European melodies and harmonies.

"A virtuoso at the piano and the vocal cords - a classically trained natural talent, whose charismatic voice lifted all the brilliant vocal elements of meditative pleasure." - UNT.SE (Sweden)

"One of Brazil’s brightest young composers

" - GRAMOPHONE

"Dazzling Vocal Soloist"

- LA TIMES

"… a talent quite beyond compare. There's certainly no one like her in Brazilian music..."

- ALL MUSIC GUIDE

"A Serious Triple Threat"

SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE

"Clarice Assad is quite simply a phenomenon who has streaked across the world’s musical landscape like one of those comets that appears just once in a lifetime"

"Clarice Assad’s Sephardic Suite sometimes embraces almost- avant garde techniques in an amazingly inventive work, which has brilliant writing for the flute and guitar. The ending, utilizing percussion from the players is wonderful.'
