“He brought his eclectic sound, which is truly a perfect blend
of the classic (Jorge Ben Jor) and the contemporary, to a packed
crowd at Mercury [Lounge] and wailed on the drums for a good hour-plus.
It’s rare to see a frontman simultaneously rapping and playing
percussion, but the São Paulo native breezed through it with the
ease of a vet and casually kept the audience engaged via adlibs
em portugués.” – Latina.com (February 2009)

“It’s to Curumin’s credit that he kneaded this thick sonic dough
into something not just digestible but delicious. ‘Japan Pop
Show’ includes some of the catchiest music released this year,
including a single, “Compacto,” that rates as an ideal song of
summer. – The New York Daily News (December 5, 2008)

“Brazilian break-out Curumin delivers a modern version of the
danceable funk and samba-influenced rock that made countrymen Jorge
Ben and Gilberto Gil worldwide stars in the 1970s. – Flavorpill
(January 27, 2009)
