״In a shorter passage (but not less remarkable) mezzo-soprano Maya Amir is crossing all the ambitus and varieties of the vocal colors in an immense phrase the flexibility of Ravel's Kaddish offers. The deep tone stays soft, the law register is present still serves as a support of her high and shining notes (like her white dress)."

"Beautiful combination of short pieces from different periods. Madrigals of Monteverdi and Ferrari from the Early Baroque, alongside wonderful ancient Ladino and folk songs arranged by Federico Garcia Lorca... A captivating combination of popular pieces, catchy to the ear; some are very well-known with a high musical quality."
Maya received her first review when she was nine-month-old by her grandmother, Margalit. Margalit comes from a musical family who lived in Safed for eight generations. When grandmother Margalit - who was an amateur gifted singer – started singing a children song for Maya, the little one continued singing the melody accurately and enthusiastically. The excited grandmother declared: “this child is going to be a talented singer”.
