„Tasíya combines musical influences from Eastern Europe with contemporary jazz. She enchants us with her beautiful voice, her energy and creativity. She is still an insider tip, but that will not remain for long. Make sure you go and listen!“  Michael Schiefel

"Tasíya is a fantastic singer, who simply masters everything from ballad to roaring rock.“  
Kalle Kalima

Press

"Without drums, bassist Bründl; Pianist Rainer Böhm and saxophonist Hugo Read, a rhythmic, harmonious and impressionistic mood, in which singer Nastja Volokitina feels visibly comfortable with her virtuoso, complex modulations, which are presented with bewildering ease. The young woman from Odessa relied on Ukrainian and Russian folk motifs, techniques of Bulgarian or Azerbaijani vocal music and nature poetry. "A Flower Is A Lovesome Thing" in the final underlined that you can also sing songs from the "Great American Songbook" without clichés. "- Detlef Kinsler / Frankfurter Neue Presse 2016


"Nastja Volokitina performed chamber music jazz with beautiful Russian folk motifs, Estonian poetry, bewitching voice and lots of charm. A real discovery. "- Journal Frankfurt 2016
