Album Notes
CityBeat, Cincinatti, OH— by Jacob Richardson
“This might not entirely possible, but O*VAD*YA's main inspiration could be the kaleidoscope. The band is very similar to the toy; each new twist reveals a vibrant blossom of unexpected potency. Classic Rock rubs elbows with Celtic harmonies. Jazz welcomes back Medieval lyres. Arabic flutes duel with electric guitars. A World music education in one night. Dig it: WorldBeat Cranberries, Rusted Root, Smoking Hookahs...”

“Ovadya Hard to Define, but Easy to Rock”
J. T. Morand | Chicago Tribune’s Pioneer Press

They call themselves psychedelic world music with heavy Middle East influences. That much is evident.
But the members of Ovadya also say listeners might hear traces of System of a Down, Earth, Wind and Fire ... Alice in Chains. Heart also comes to mind, with the duel female vocals, and heavier Pink Floyd. None of it was influenced by anybody though.
Influenced "means a person tries to consciously emulate a sound," said guitarist and vocalist M Hurley, adding the only thing she ever tried to specifically emulate was popular sitar player Ravi Shankar. "There is so much good stuff out there that I love, but that doesn't mean we sound like it at all."
Hurley said the content of [many of] Ovadya's songs are based on the Psalms or liturgy and inspired by a spiritual worldview. "I took a song that was probably a thousand years old, no copyright, and re-rendered it," she said. "And some [of our] songs are just about stuff of life."
