Sabrina Lastman is an outstanding singer and composer. The Folds of the Soul offers, from a very powerful individual perspective, original compositions and standards. Comprehending a wide musical spectrum..., it reaches a cohesive discourse of solid creative rigor, with a clear orientation to avant-garde jazz. Sabrina sings with irreproachable technical display, and unusual expressive intensity." Sergio Piccirilli El Intruso. (Argentina-USA)

The Folds of the Soul “A magic atmosphere which folds can only be crossed by the breath that becomes sound. And Lastman do it in a very tuned and delicate discovery of details. Her voice is impeccable. It seduces, grills, plays with contrasting images and irregular sonoric surfaces." Alexander Laluz - Brecha (Uruguay)
