press quotes

"It was an ENORMOUS joy having you at the festival Saskia - thank you so much for your enthusiasm, artistry and incredible performances. I look forward to working with you in the future."

- Manuel Bagorro, HIFA, Zimbabwe / Carnegie Hall, NY

Laroo plays the stars out of the heavens, while her grooving band trundles on, fiercely propulsive. It is funk, jazz-dance and hip-hop in one.”
