"Jim Bessman (SC)"

"...Apart from dynamic improvisation making the listener feel unique emotional experience, another aspect of Zikr's art was exposed. This is a stunning strain of passion in the very voices and the manner of the vocalists' performance..." - Billboard

"Mikhail Sadchikov"

"Not every artist, though a most brilliant, has a fortune to open something new in art. However, the fact is true: the duet "Zikr" is being primary and unique. Some specialists claim that the duet's performing is a new genre of art and call it symphony singing..." - "Smena"

"Nalalia Baklanova"

"A man and a woman came to the stage, sat opposite one another, closed their eyes and in some instants the show began that one may hardly call "singing". That is music without words where you can dimly discern the just one thing - the involvement in something peculiar. That is so unusual that at first an inexperienced visitor would stay in complete perplexity. Being puzzled he is trying to remember everything that he's already heard before about guttural singing, shaman sorcery and other attributes of esoteric art. Nevertheless that will appear to be neither of them or anything else. Perhaps we can say about such thing they are "everything and nothing" at the same time. - "Business World" Moscow

"Tatyana Songaylo"

"Strong magic voices are ringing at the stage without a word, without accompaniment, touching the most sensitive chords of human soul. Audience is listening to what is going on in a burst of inspiration. These fascinating voices full of sincerity and unusual purity fill the environment; they can bring the audience to catharsis, purge with the fire of art... Duo Zikr is a different kind of spiritual art that cannot be fitted in any music genre, and versatility is its unquestionable merit. Anyone regardless of the nationality or belonging to some tradition can feel a whole world".
- "Lithuanian Echo",
