"Toy Raha Toy is an impeccable album representing music rooted in the traditions of southern Madagascar, performed by three world-class musicians." Angel Romero, World Music Central.org

"…album after album, tour after tour (when they happened at all), Malagasy acts have failed to achieve sufficient sales numbers, and today, it is rare to find an international release or touring group from this vast Indian Ocean island in North America. Given that history, it is risky to predict that this is the album that will change the tide. And yet, I am ready to do just that." Banning Eyre, Afropop Worldwide

"The relaxed performances of three masters of the genre, who are clearly enjoying one another’s company, make for a really enjoyable experience as Monika’s voice soars over the intricate accompaniments." Vic Smith, fRoots Magazine

"Ils forment le superbe trio Toko Telo." Patrick Labesse, Le Monde

"Toko Telo is a perfectly matched, matured and virtuoso trio that pulls you into the strangely familiar melodies and the slightly tricky rhythms of Madagascar." Willi Klopottek, Woxx

"A Malagasy super group." Tim Ianna, tropicalidad.be
