"Listening to Ash, I have been reminded of another French artist who took a bird’s-eye view of a divided world, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Best known as the author of The Little Prince, he was an early mail pilot across Africa and South America, adventures he captured elegantly in his 1939 memoir Wind, Sand and Stars. Lifting off from Toulouse, an early voyager in empty skies, he wrote, “The most wondrous thing was that there on the planet’s curved back, between that magnetic sheet and those stars, stood a human consciousness in which that rain could find reflection as in a mirror..."

"...On a pure mineral stratum, a dream is a miracle.” De Saint-Exupéry once crashed in the Sahara, and almost succumbed to the sand; Ibeyi could have laid down, many times over, in the ashes of their idealism. Instead, with the same ascendant spirit, with soaring harmonies and conviction, they continue to smile, and they defy. They rise." - Pitchfork
