Jazz Hot - J.M. Gaudas
"The voice of Ravi Prasad is powerful, warm, captivating."
 
Les Inrockuptibles - O. Bailly
"Ravi Prasad & Pedro Soler," How does one tune his guitar which can play not only flamenco to play alongside Ravi’s
voice which cries? How does it work? It's a mystery. It gives us a wave of nostalgia listening to this CD whose beauty owes nothing to the ornament. "
Libération - Bouziane Daoudi
"Ravi Prasad composes work that creates a voluptuous charm and trembling."
 
Chronicart - Soeuf Elbadawi
Duet with Pedro Soler: "A lot of focus on sharing, this is not Ravi Prasad’s first experience. In 96, he had already initiated a meeting between jazz, Indian classical music and flamenco, with a show called Mythia, the Indian symphony (show played at UNESCO and at the Olympia). By initiating a new dialogue with an ace of the gypsy duende, Pedro Soler, music lovers are thus left delighted and emotional.”

Z Production - Jean-Luc Aribaud

Trip-Hop - Charles de la rédaction
Song for the Inner World: "It is not surprising that artists such as Björk, Massive Attack and Madonna have wanted to work with Talvin Singh when listening to his last performance:" Song for the Inner World ", which was commissioned by the festival of Saint-Denis. Undisputed master of this traditional and a virtuoso of turntable mixing, Talvin Singh and Sangat, a group of eight international artists who accompany him as singer and Indian percussionist Ravi Prasad ... perform a work in six parts that invite travel, meditation, spirituality, and communion with a subtle blend of traditional Indian music and urban electronic sounds."
   
Ethno Tempo - Stéphane Fougère
Song for the Inner World: "These five songs for the inner world of Talvin Singh are like odes to the divine, respecting

Les Inrockuptibles - F. Dordor
"Song for the Inner World", created by Talvin Singh for the Festival of Saint-Denis, and attended, among others, by the
 
great Carnatic voice Ravi Prasad, condenses a musical vision focused on the interaction between machines and traditions that continue to fascinate and inspire his work.
         
L'Humanité - F. C.
La fête de l’Huma: "This astonishing mastery of rhythm and language characterises the absolute musicality of Minvielle..
 
His singing balances in the veins, in the blood. He started a local laboratory, where he invites special guests such as artist Ravi Prasad, the poet Bernard Manciet, thePolyrythmic Rap Choral Experience of Gascogne. Not to mention the essential Duophonic with Bernard Lubat, in which both lead to the instigation of the voice in all its forms (poetry, theatre, literature, blues ...): We are in the ocean.
