album coverIn today's NYTimes, Neil Strauss lists "Laughter Through Tears" by Oi Va Voi as his #9 album of the year.

"If Massive Attack was a klezmer band, you'd have Oi Va Voi, a London sextet that pulls together Uzbek, Yiddish and English singers into a mesmerizing, innovative debut of chill-out music with substance."
