Said about Pia and her amazing colleagues:
"Most spectacular was the performance by Finnish Anna Fält and Pia Pohjakallio..."
Alexander Agrell, Sydsvenskan
"I want to nominate flamenco dancer Pia Pohjakallio for Artist of the Year.
With natural scenic presence and a driving force beyond the ordinary Pia explores flamenco as an art form beyond burdening clichés. During 2012, we have been able to see her in performances for both children and grownups... A strong voice in contemporary dance context! "
A "publics vote" for Folk- och Världsmusikgalan
Artist of the Year Award
"...Her feet did real drum solos and it is impossible to understand how anyone can patter so quickly with the heels. Sometimes it was as if we heard the exact same motion, same mood, in the guitar as we saw in the dance. Vision and hearing became one. Flamenco heat, power and emotional intensity make it an experience. Especially when it is done so competently and with such charisma that here."
Susanne Holmlund, ST
"Urban Orchestra" was the awesome spectacle that opened the second semifinal of the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 in Malmö. Definitely one of the most beautiful and impressive musical numbers we've been enjoying in the history of the Festival..."
