“I saw you all at Wanderlust and WOW, amazing performance. The ancient Bards and Muses were frolicking in the etherworlds above and below you in unison to your performance.” - John Marosi

“My expectations were exceeded! The Shimmy Sisters combined with Danyavaad, make up what is by far the best Middle Eastern influenced ensemble I have ever experienced.”
- San Diego Beach Life Magazine

“A Spiritually Rockin Journey! The full house included everyone from your all American dad with his two 10 year old daughters, to Burners and internationally known dancers, to local musicians. With standing room only, people sat on the floor, and stood between tables and chairs and by the end, the entire crowd was dancing along with them! A man in the audience said ‘it feels like I am being taken back into an ancient past ... into my nomadic past life.’ ”- The Papyrus

“Everyone was mesmerized by the sight. On stage, the beautiful Shimmy Sisters bellydanced and balanced long, sleek swords on their heads while leaning back into a somewhat contorted position. The members of Danyavaad closed their eyes and sank into the Middle Eastern-fusion music they were making, and with the skilled DJ Sandbag on bass, Gabriel Penix on dumbek and Greg Vaughan on electric sitar.”
- Kinsee Morlan of the San Diego CityBeat

“The Shimmy Sisters and Danyavaad captivated the crowd with enticing movements set to hypnotic rhythms. The belly-dancing Shimmy Sisters produced a stunning visual delight with twirling skirts intermingling with multiple colored scarves to become living, moving art. The sisters’ concentration, flexibility and control were evident as they, with flaming swords balance on their heads, stretched and twisted eliciting applause from the audience.“ - Elizabeth Guiten of the Imperial Beach Eagle & Times
