“it's impossible to resist Mitra Sumara's ecstatic spirit - why would anyone not want in on some groovy, boundary-breaking love?” — PopMatters

Tahdig is born out of a curiosity to one's heritage but it basks in the glow of a sound that is vibrant and bold…A beacon of beauty in a world preconceived hostility, Mitra Sumara indeed, does a hell of a job of building bridges, not walls, with their dancing debut.”  -- Nanobot Rock

“In an era where governments want to build walls instead of bridges, it’s refreshing to hear a band bridging cultures and generations, who help keep history intact, while bringing the party vibes too.” — Jazz Chill

"Tahdig by Mitra Sumara is a wonderful collection of music which will delight listeners of all backgrounds and interests. All of which makes it the perfect vehicle for helping to build bridges between two countries and cultures that have been alienated for such a long time.” -- Qantara
