KATUS SINGS IN EVERY TONGUE FROM CZECH TO ENGLISH AND BY A STROKE
OF INSPIRED GENIUS, SHE SINGS GAELLIC THROUGH HER FLUTE.
"This is one of the most original and captivating recordings i've heard in a
long time. Katus should be nurtured and encouraged to grow! She is an
important and necessary compound for a genre so often overlooked & dismissed
by today's predominantly rock &roll environment! This is folk music with its
creative spirit intact!" Music News Scotland
"Its world folk music that dances at you! her debut album "Smile is one of
the most refreshing pieces of originality & substance that you're ever
likely to hear It loses none of its qualities when she's singing it live.
Her voice has verve, charm & is undeniably sexy sometimes." Music News
“The whistling wind of diversity and change. This record will one day be regarded as the most important folk release to caress the mainstream.” Allan Baille, favorite albums of 2007.
"I can't belive she sings through her flute - truly amazing- She can sing.
She can play. She's gorgeous. She'll make it" - Nigel kennedy

and Joni M." Silverwood Studios
