What's been said about Carol:

"Exímia interpreter and super sensitive in relation to the unfolding of Brazilian music, Carol has been doing her art for a long time and always with a coherence and a talent that enchants. In addition to the groups Quinteto Coloquial and CantaVento, since 2009, with Quitanda, she presents individual work and stands with one of the main voices to stay in the scene in São Paulo and Brazil. An illumination, in short! "Guto Leite, composer and professor of Brazilian Literature at UFRGS (Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul):

"Carol Ladeira's recently released CD from Campinas (SP) is a dip in her musical universe of varied rhythms and languages. This is her second solo album, but the singer has already participated in a group of three other phonographic records of popular traditions and songs. In the case of this new work, Mar de Vento, Carol gives emphasis to Afros rhythms, poetry and popular song. The subtlety of the voice remains the same. " Augusto Diniz, from the GGN Portal
