"Mississippi To Sahara is a great record. I love it, and I love how it sounds. I can only imagine the wonderful songs to come from Faris in the future."
"This is the most amazing movement to happen with this great music! The welcome return home to Africa! Faris is amazing! And he is playing a Weissenborn square neck guitar!"
"A do-not-miss live performance"
Vancouver Folk Festival
"Guitarist/singer Faris mesmerized the audience with his blues at the 30th Festival Nuits D'Afrique in Montreal"
"The desert bluesiest desert blues album ever."
"Faris a clairement le blues dans le sang, la voix et les doigts."
"Producer Sedryk threw Faris the idea to make the perfect, natural marriage between both his personal roots. And, by crikey, he's done it! If our old heroes Alexis Korner, John Peel or Charlie Gillett had still been with us, this album would be all over the airwaves"
"Des mélodies d'Amérique, des guitares du désert et des sentiments universels: Faris est un gardien du mojo qui écrit son nom dans le sable émouvant."
