"With a name as lyrical as hers, Nasimiyu Murumba may have been destined to be a musician." VOGUE

"Nasimiyu Murumba draws from a wide array of influences — Talking Heads, Etta James, TV on the Radio, Dirty Projectors, and Fela Kuti among them — to craft her blend of free-folk, funk, and dream-pop." SPIN

"Picture the soulful ringleader of a circus-folk orchestra– such is the big dreamer’s vibe of this latest gem…" Okayplayer

"Her influences range from Sun Ra and Fela Kuti to the Dirty Projectors and Bjork—but with bold rhythms and a powerful voice, Nasimiyu fuses the diverse array into her own danceable, soulful style." UTNE Reader

"A gorgeous a capella bit and an aching piano riff fold and melt into slick dream pop in this new track by Nasimiyu Murumba, a Brooklyn-based artist who cut her teeth for four years under the tutelage of street performers, voodoo practitioners, and marching band musicians in New Orleans. Needless to say, we’re intrigued, and counting the days until her EP Dirt comes out January 24." NYLON

"Nasimiyu Murumba will awaken all your cells and inspire you" IMPOSE

"Nasimiyu’s latest single ‘Raise Your Arrow (The Hunt)’ comes out swinging at the fences in a tireless groove pointed sharply at its kill." THE DELI NYC

"Nasimiyu's exuberant throw down, the dirt [EP], presents her as a maturing artist layering on instrumental accompaniment more discerningly, serving to bolster the best instrument of them all: her voice, which continues to expand in range and expression. It's evident from "Even in the Dark," the EP's opener, that a more contemplative singer is at work; she shows off her virtuosity in what is, fittingly, an anthem of focus and independence. Whether it's the beatboxing slink and slow funk of Dig Deep, the call to rise, discover and conquer on The Hunt, or the stylish strength of The Biggest Drum, she exudes a mastery that one can only wish could have been drawn out for more than a mere five songs."
