"Folha de SP - Journal"

“Kristoff Silva is a very special musician equally as a composer, singer, guitarist, and arranger , and unique when each of these roles are combined into one artist. Light (levitating???) compositions, acoustic and electronic instruments woven into a subtle and rigorous fabric reveal an original and integral personality. He creates a bridge between Minas and São Paulo (with his collaborations and partnerships) and a bridge within Minas itself (connecting us with the purest spring of Minas’ lyricism).”

- José Miguel Wisnik

"Artistic versatility"

Versatile. The adjective, says the dictionary, refers to that which has many and varied qualities in a particular type of activities, or even in general. In Krstoff Silva's career the word is more than necessary to shelter the various artistic expressions in which he ventured.
