"You find yourself with her in a Tibetan monastery, witnesses early Christian rituals and their choral singing, listening in the next momentto a wistful folk song, then again, you find yourself on a postmodern dance floor again until a good old Jazz wildly shakes "

-Imbued with an air of almost liturgical spirituality, her music is ancient and cutting-edge at the same time…

Höghielm has a stunning voice, singing not only in her native Gotlandish but also in Latin and a form of wordless mouth music that is reminiscent of Tuvan throat singing... Aspects of seemingly disparate styles such as Arabic and Indian music are in evidence throughout, giving credence to the theory that all of the planets music is rooted in single pool of sound.

We can only be thankful that there are artists such as Karin Höghielm who are able to tap into this primal force so directly and produce musical offerings as beautiful as Apocryphal." Feedback Monitor - Toronto - Canada
