"… Only one band in Israel looks and sounds like that: Marsh Dondurma.
In these past three years, Marsh Dondurma has lost none of its exciting dynamics and bursting energy and on the stage of "Levontin 7" [Tel Aviv] it proved that there is no conflict between these qualities and qualities such as clever compositions and complex arrangements… the groove draws the body into the music and the sophistication keeps the ear fascinated throughout the entire piece."
"…When they lock onto a groove the outcome is irresistible"
