“Aszmara, an internationally known dancer, provided one of the highlights of the day with an exquisite solo. Using every inch of her eloquent body she clarified the music in all its depth and richness.” -- Reading Times, PA

“There were several vivid solos. ‘Herosi Bar,’ choreographed and performed by Aszmara... began languidly, then grew increasingly intense.” --Jack Anderson, New York Times

“Aszmara... respected for their high production value and their repertory of dances spanning the Middle Eastern spectrum” --Arabesque Magazine, NY

“... frenzied moments surfaced when Aszmara made full use of theatrical possibilities of the finger-cymbals and swirling chiffon costumes of her own design.” --The Irish Times, Dublin

“She is the most beautiful... and dances so, that one is first in the story of a Thousand and One Nights.”-- Zurich Press, Switzerland

“... a fire red whirlwind is Aszmara. Her artistic movements go beyond this dance.” --Neue Zurcher Zeitung, Switzerland
