“A distinctly live wire of musical independence and a formidable voice. Lewis has a yearning upturn to her voice to go with its majestic and clamorous power. The music of Martha Lewis is a unique cultural crossover driven by a charismatic leader, that is as much about changing London as it is about Mediterranean roots and that burns a volatile fuel of European folk music, modern technology, pop influence and jazz improvisation”.

John Fordham Guardian
“Here, World Music collides with the ‘Dark side of the moon’ era of Pink Floyd. Powerful drums and mantra like vocal delivery highlight the feeling of spirituality which infuses the pieces.”

“Martha Lewis’ Cafe Aman project marries the urban blues of the cafes of Athens in the 1920s with urban London. Martha grew up in London and her dance- friendly world music, takes in tango, classical music and Greek rhythms and provides a nostalgic and lyrical background to her striking vocal lead.”
