• Huw Henesy (SONGLINES, June 2022)
    ``This impressively confident debut album stands out from the crowd, however, as an instantly captivating collection of original songs; nostalgic, but also fresh, new and personal, swinging from soulful jazz to samba with ease``.
  • Dr, Decker (ENLACE FUNK, MAY 2022)
    Afrobrasileira is a fantastic tour of the traditional rhythms of her native Brazil and the birth certificate of a new star with everything there is to have: an exuberant, charismatic voice and stage presence.
  • Joe Ross (Roots Music Report, May 2022)
    Afrobrasileira entwines the syncopated rhythms of soulful Bahia jazz, always keeping the Carnaval music inspired and danceable. Mirla Riomar’s beautiful voice is electrifying when singing her compositions to Bahian sounds and rhythms.
